I have been experimenting with ways to present computer source code,
using HTML markup.  One of the things I'd like to support is code
folding (selectively hiding and showing sets of lines, based on the
hierarchical structure of the code):

It seems like WAI-ARIA attributes could be used for this, as in:

 Example 41 - Treeview

However, it isn't a very close match to my use case.  Given that
someone else may have done work in this area, I thought I should
ask for help.  Any suggestions before I start hacking?
