Eli, sorry, I did not answer your question because everybody on other
forums, github, etc... told me that I would need to install a third party
package to do what I showed and even them, it would not play along with
folding.

So I wanted to know if you could, starting from emacs -Q, construct a lisp
code that achieved the effect shown here:

If it can't be done, I think it is the case to issue a feature request for
that.

cheers,

Filipe
