Org-Mode is already doing this, I guess.  When you press M-RET, it
inserts the prefix automatically.  I just want to find a way that is
similar to M-C-\ (indent-region) so that I can paste a block of text
and reformat it easily.

This is good.  Make it much easier to write some thing.  However, it
doesn't help for reformatting.
