This display mode is quite useful but MAY be quite difficult to implement.
A display mode where all lines within a file that include
a 'string' are displayed and able to be edited, and all lines without 'string' are not displayed.

    Although the Scintilla editing widget is capable of this, I don't think this feature is straightforward. Most of the time when coding the programmer needs to see a few lines of context. Also it would have to avoid complicating the interface when switching between the two modes. Personally I think the current search functionality is more useful (e.g. the new marker navigation keybindings in SVN).
