;;; Commentary:

;; Functionality for eliding boilerplate text (normally copyright
;; notices) in file headers to avoid clutter when you know what it
;; says.
;;
;; `elide-head-headers-to-hide' controls what is elided by the command
;; `elide-head'.  A buffer-local invisible overlay manages the
;; elision.

;; You might add `elide-head' to appropriate major mode hooks or to

;; `find-file-hook'.  Please do not do this in site init files.  If

;; Note that `hs-minor-mode' will do a similar job by default, but
