so it's up to the user to make sure that folding doesn't actually make a
LaTeX command disappear altogether? (if i specify "[1]" as replacement
string for \item, and i use \item without any argument, it disappears
completely.)

i'm not sure whether this is really a problem. personally, i wouldn't
supply such a colon in the replacement string if the command i'm folding
doesn't actually produce that colon. the reason being that as a general
rule, folding makes the text in the editor appear more like the resulting
dvi/pdf text.
