I'm not sure I like the idea of triple quotes.
Since all the new string features (variable substitution, allowing
newlines) seems to have local effect only, I'd prefer some sort of
pragma scheme, whereby you can say what sort of features you need for
strings in the current module. I can't think of a nice python-syntax,
though, and I don't know how difficult it would be to reconfigure the
parser for each module.
