Interesting question. There is no direct support for such
functionality at present.
You could write a script, wrapper (Docutils Reader), and/or makefile
that indents the input text and prefaces it with ".. line-block::".
That's the simplest and most direct solution.
The "include" directive could be extended to support the "line-block"
context with an option like the existing "literal" option. (In
addition to a new "line-block" context, "parsed-literal" should
probably also be supported. Perhaps this functionality should be
generalized into a "context" option instead of multiple individual
A new command-line option could be added to give context. But that
feels too complex.
