Thanks Lukas!

Agree in *some* nodes is nice to have the sockets shown, but default
behavior should be to hide them, as it is not the same case for all
the nodes, so perhaps let the "Toggle Hidden Node Sockets" option
still work when collapsed? So we can manually specify which node
should show its sockets and let the rest not to. Would this make
everyone happy?

P.S: pss pss!, "Toggle Hidden Node Sockets" operator name should be
"Toggle Unused Node Sockets"
