fwiw, combined with new [Feature #12906] (rescue/else/ensure are allowed inside do/end blocks), comment #7 makes me happy.

Feature #13923: Idiom to release resources safely, with less indentations

----------------------------------------
In programs which grabs and releases resources very often, we need to write so much begin-ensure clauses.

```ruby
begin
  storage = getStorage()
  begin
    buffer = storage.get(buffer_id)

    # ...
  ensure
    buffer.close if buffer
  end
rescue StorageError => e
  # ...
ensure
  storage.close if storage
end
```

Such code makes our code fat, and difficult to understand.
I want to write such code like below:

```ruby
# Class of storage and buffer should include a module (like Closeable)
# or be checked with respond_to?(:close)

begin(storage = getStorage(); buffer = storage.get(buffer_id)
  # ...
rescue StorageError => e
  # ...
end
# (buffer.close if buffer) rescue nil
# (storage.close if storage) rescue nil
```

Other languages also have similar features:

* Java: try-with-resources
* Python: with
