Yes, it can span several lines of text, 

But is it clever enough to:

<%#
  <% for photo in @listing.photos %>
  <% and more Ruby processing in an rhtml file %>
%>


The request is primarily for 2 things within an rhtml file (possibly
other applications):

1) block comments of ERb code
2) non-processing / non-display of these block comments
