An update: I have added the ability for sections to expand/collapse when
you double-click on them!
Unfortunately there are some rough edges in our grid code, that
sometimes seems to prevent the sections from expanding/collapsing - it
seems to be intermittent - either you can always collapse/expand
sections, or you can't at all. Double-clicking to edit an item elsewhere
in the table seems to re-enable section expand/collapse, but I'm not
Anyway, incremental progress is being made. Next up: the ability to turn
these things off :)
