;;; 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.

;; Please don't turn this on in site init files so that information
;; isn't hidden from users who may not know what it says.

;; Inspired by jwz's hide-copyleft.el, for which we don't have an
;; assignment.
