Another method of doing something like this would be a folding-feature.
So you could have a better view over your Project because you can fold
away some part of the code you are actually no interested in.
e.g.:
void foobar()
{
...
}

And where you can see the three dots threre is normally the code of this
function.

Only my 2 cents.
