Not sure if this can be done and i don't know it but i would like to allow users to hide or show fields in a field editor like we do columns of a table.  Is this possible or on the list of things to do?

Probably this could be a basic workaround for your need. 
But this can be achievable by customization.

By setting a UI-Model as a "Master Control" and a UI-Field to handle a Render Condition on those fields you need to show/hide.

Plus, consider a Button set to turn on/off the render condition.
refer to this XML page sample:

Hey Chad, you know, I don't think that we've actually talked about this one. It's a great idea though. It seems like a natural extension to the behavior of the table.

We loosely call features like this our "personalization framework". We have talked about a number of improvements that revolve around giving the end user more control over their experience. I'll add this one to that list for future consideration.
