Deep in LexPython.cxx :)

But consider:

1) The level number the folder produces is for folding purposes, not Python
syntax, so for eg successive lines of triple quoted strings have the level
increased by one to cause the string to be foldable, even though the actual
source is not indented further.

2) The folder only works for PEP8 styled files, some legal but non-PEP-8
implicit or explicit line continuation situations are folded wrongly

3) An increase in the level number is the fold point, not what the number's
value is.  Or you could read the SC_FOLDLEVELHEADERFLAG flag which erm ...
flags the start of a fold.

4) The folder would have to always count increases/decreases from the start
of the file to actually get a level that counts correctly or save state on
the file.  At the moment it starts from near the start of the visible range
most of the time to make it faster, and saves no state so it only knows the
actual indentation, not the level number.  You will have to keep count
yourself as you go through the file clearing/setting the fold points.
