I will look at it.  It would be nice if it were generalized to Windows
platforms, where people occasionally ask for what passes for here-doc
support for the Windows command.com.

Also, it might be a Good Thing to try to integrate the temporary file
with the ^C handling in GNU make so that the temp file was removed even
if the user used ^C.  And, any creation of temp files needs to be
hardened to avoid DOS, etc. attacks.

Just a few offhand thoughts... :).
