Among other things, POD does not support indentation
Sure it does -- in a Pod format block.
=begin someformat This comment can be indented as much as I want =end someformat =cut
That said, I agree otherwise with your point that Perl doesn't support multi-line comments. Pod can be used for multi-line comments, but Perl and Pod are really two separate languages that can live in the same file. The Perl parser and Pod parsers just choose to pay attention to different languages.
