I usually work with cpp but it seems like this problem applies to many
other lexers as well. For example, as a test I renamed the extension
to .cs and the C# lexer are the same issue since it has no _fold.
Surprisingly lua has this issue as well.

This makes me wonder whether the default way of folding based on
indentation is appropriate. I don't understand why the fold level
would ever change more than one based on the indent. Also, doesn't the
scintilla edit control already have folds implemented properly for its
language lexers that textadept can take advantage of? Many of the
other scintilla based editors doesn't seem to have this problem.
