 That would explain why I haven't managed to do so.  But I do think
folding markers inside comments should be defined completely separate
from those outside comments.  (I'd also like to specify pairs, so if and
end_while don't match, but thanks to snippets, that's less of an issue.)

 I do get a start-of-fold marker.

 That would have to be a multi-line match, and still catch ordinary
English text in comments.
