Hi Erik,

This is a very popular feature request, but as far as I know it is not
possible due to limitations ingrained fairly deep into the core of
Emacs.  To my knowledge the best such mode for embedding multiple major
modes in a single buffer is MuMaMo-mode [1] which has been applied to
source-code blocks in Org-mode buffers [2], but as mentioned in that
thread, it's far from stable.

Best -- Eric
