I see that CodeMirror 3 is out now, which allows you to mark some text 
and replace it with a DOM node [1].  I think you see this in the code 
folding demo:

It seems that our editor now supports this sort of functionality!  I've 
been waiting for this capability in CodeMirror for years; I'm really 
excited about it!

Thanks,

Jason

[1] See the markText function: 
http://codemirror.net/doc/manual.html#markText, and then replaceWith option.
