Just my experience:  you won't get it to work.  Everything available
are more or less dirty hacks.

The most promising approach (IMHO) is multi-mode.el (but it's a more
general solution, you have to do some hacking yourself to get it
work for your special mode).

Don't spend to much time fiddling with the different modes.  Emacs
isn't ready yet to deal with this.
