Strictly speaking yes. Of course the lexer prefers triple quotes when
it seems them so this is one way of disambiguating. Also I presume
that concatenated literals will generally be separated by whitespace.
I sort of like compatibility with C at the lexical level as an esthetical
goal too.

But if more people think it's bad, I'll rethink it -- after all it was
only a ten-line change or so.
