Re: Enhancement proposal: Backslash character continuation

Yes you're right, it does - but this often looks messy.

In Emacs it makes the difference between:

foo_variables = foo_value_1;foo_value_2;foo_value_3;foo_value_4;
foo_value_5;foo_value_6;foo_value_7;foo_value_8;foo_value_9;foo
_value_10;foo_value_11;

foo_variables = foo_value_1; \
                          foo_value_2; \
                          foo_value_3; \
                          foo_value_4; \
                          foo_value_5; \
                          foo_value_6; \
                          foo_value_7; \
                          foo_value_8; \
                          foo_value_9; \
                          foo_value_10; \
                          foo_value_11;

Now, that might not seem like much to you - but I would say it makes
things a whole lot more easy to read.

I would imagine that the patch for this change would be quite small so
I really imagine too many reasons not to allow this.
