Perl Heredocs do the same things and predates Ruby's (at least they do
all you described and a bit more).

But what would be really nice is a way to write regex without \\
everywhere, as of now this is the single thing that makes regex in
Haskell less pleasant than in a language like Perl (which has built-in
support for them, but just to be able to ignore all escape codes would
be really useful).
