In the abstract I agree, but I'm not sure how easy it is and how much
can really be shared.  I think every language has slightly different
rules about how (and where) a heredoc starts, so I suspect it'll be hard
to share that part.  And the "match the end" part is the easy part
anyway, so there's a risk that sharing it may not bring very
much benefit.
