I've had a hackish little elisp function for years that always struck me

This kind of "toggle header" or "toggle source" function is standard IDE
fare.  I got used to it from a previous life when I was using Metrowerks
Codewarrior.  It's _very_ handy, IMO.

Is there some reason that such a thing is not included in emacs?  Maybe
it's there and I've missed it?  Would the maintainers be interested in
such a facility if I were to write it?
