[OS X TeX] Outlining ersatz

I have trouble keeping control of the flow of what I write. 
Specifically, I miss an outliner to move whole chapters and/or sections. 
What I have been doing to help me doing this manually without creating 
havoc is routinely to insert comments as follows:

%begin Chap 2
\section[Headings]{(Decimal) Headings}
%begin Chap 2 Section 1
%end Chap 2 Section 1

\section[Number-phrases]{(Decimal) Number-phrases}
%begin Chap 2 Section 2
%end Chap 2 Section 2
%end Chap 2

Then, with the help of the table of contents and pdfsync, I manage to 
keep track and to re-number all the comments.

Still, would it be possible to write a macro to insert the new comment 
after I have deleted the old one? I have no idea how to make it look up 
"the number" or if it is even possible.

But, if so, I would of course appreciate any hint about how to proceed 
and/or where to learn what I surely need to.
