And of course putting '$' immediately after value won't fly: if we
have a space in the value, and truncation happens just after space,
you can't tell if keyword is truncated or not.

So we should use some special character as marker:

1) if a keyword is untruncated, it will end ' $'
2) if the keyword is truncated, it will end '#$'
