ok... so in the situation this thread is covering:

   foldhiddenbit = byte(7);
   foldhiddenmask = byte(1 shl foldhiddenbit);
   currentfoldhiddenbit = byte(6);
   currentfoldhiddenmask = byte(1 shl currentfoldhiddenbit);
   foldlevelmask = byte(not (foldhiddenmask or currentfoldhiddenmask));

is the way to do it?
