Sure, if you following indenting levels you can be agnostic about what is
being folded. But maybe more practical to limit to bullet lists.
1. Otherwise you get folding icons everywhere
2. You need a syntax to store folding state per paragraph

But lets see what Hans has in mind.

I've though about it, but I think that is a few bridges to far. I have some
ideas about it, but unrelated to folding in the wiki text.

OK, good night. Feel free to contact me (and Hans) directly for details.
