We would like the following extensibility features in VS Code (to match the same extensibility points already shipping in Visual Studio):

  1. The ability to change a line’s height.
  2. The ability to change a line’s caret height (independently of the line height).
  3. The ability to hide special coded text (such as inside a comment) on the line (or paint over it – like an adornment).
  4. The ability to intercept the mouse click/down/up/over events so we can interact with adornments as first class citizens.

Context: These changes would allow extension developers to create plugins that support editing and viewing of rich documents and source code inside VS Code. For example, developers could edit markdown files, seeing embedded images right inside the file, or developers could add LaTeX formulas to comments and see them rendered beautifully as math formulas in the code. This would also allow the CodeRush team to port over the embedded images feature from CodeRush to VS Code as a free plugin.
