Don, even with the expanded parameters, the raw code's
defaults retain the simplicity.
I tend to compare it with the likes of the [pg] code, where
it can be optionally extended to cover specific page number
and a prefix.

Mike, although I love the configurability of the folds code
as you put forth, I think it has made a very simple concept
and code very complicated. If we find that the default
behavior is what most users want then I guess it is not a
problem but it sure has gotten complicated and the
documentation for this code as you propose must be made much
clearer and have more examples in its final form.
