I've just found a way to do this with having to only change one line of
code (add an "id" to each section row):

diff --git a/ui-repolist.c b/ui-repolist.c
index 30915df..c64d145 100644
--- a/ui-repolist.c

                    (last_section != NULL && section != NULL &&
                     strcmp(section, last_section)))) {
-                       htmlf("<tr class='nohover'><td colspan='%d'
-                             columns);
+                       htmlf("<tr id='%s' class='nohover'><td
colspan='%d' class='reposection'>",
+                             section, columns);
                        last_section = section;

With that simple change, I was able to use your pluggable "header"
option to create something that works. The JS isn't exactly something I
would be proud of, but it does accomplish what you've described:


You can compare the two approaches:

 new js hackery: https://git-ap.linaro.org/cgit/
 original patch: https://git-ie.linaro.org/cgit/

My page loads are almost 2x slower with the new approach. However, they
still seem "fast enough".

Let me know what you think, and I can re-submit this one-liner if you
