IMO one of the most annoying things about using pod in code is the
amount of vertical space that the directives burn. For instance, if
you want to add a block in the middle of the code you need to do

=begin SOMEBLOCK

...

=end SOMEBLOCK

=cut

Ive longed for a =endcut that would function in the same way as the
=end =cut directive.

Would this be possible and/or desirable by others?

Cheers,
yves
