Regarding the other questions:

1. I believe there are no reserved words for the '=begin/=end comment'.
However, nested comments I believe were an issue at one time but they
aren't now.

3. That depends on what you're doing. For example, currently the Raku
parser recognizes the nested pod code block, but it cannot handle pod codes
inside that pod code block.

If you just want to preserve whitespace using one of the two blocks alone
should be good enough.
