For the curious, this is how ksh(1) describes it:

        If '#' is appended to '<<', then leading spaces and tabs
        will be stripped off the first line of the document and up
        to an equivalent indentation will be stripped from the
        remaining lines and from 'word'.  A tab stop is assumed to
        occur at every 8 columns for the purposes of determining
        the indentation.
