You can probably get an effect similar to explicit fold points that are
supported by the C lexer with a hack like the following, for opening
fold point:

\iffalse
\begin
\fi

And for closing:

\iffalse
\end
\fi

However I don't really know LaTeX so I'm not sure that's valid at all,
nor did I test it outside of trying it in Geany.
