File Structure Pop-up improvements

The File Structure Pop-up (Ctrl-F12) is really nice and useful for
navigating a file, especially a large file. But I think it could be made
much more useful.

It'd be nice if it reflected regions, and allowed you to collapse regions
out of the way, or at least see the boundries between regions (and their
names).

It'd be even nicer if drag-and-drop were allowed, so you could drag the
method names and field names around and actually move them in the file.

Adding indicators for what methods are hiding other methods, what methods
are over-riding other methods, and what methods are implementing interface
or abstract virtual methods would be nice as well. Same with adding get/set
indicators for properties. This would be similar to the way private,
protected, and static indicators are applied currently.

Just some ideas for making a useful tool even more useful.

All these suggestions are already implemented in the ReSharper' 2.0 File
Structure View.

Try the ReSharper 2.0 EAP!
