Hi Marcelo,

For this to be useful for what the OP wanted to achieve it should be
possible to ask for re-evaluation when on the result block.

Also, it would be nice to be able to switch easily between source and
result blocks (maybe this is possible, haven't checked).

Maybe with this additional functionality one can get most of the
hiding-the-source functionality and put all the source blocks in the
final page of the document.

The only difference I see is that when switching to the source block you
loose the visual context around it.
