I'm sure you understand my underlying concern. And that is that in a
multi-line string that ends in a quote, it's not very intuitive that you
need to escape that quote, especially if you don't have to escape it
anywhere else, nor if you have to escape anything anywhere else. It would be
best if the string was really literal, however you always need an escape
mechanism for the closing terminal. Triple quotes just don't seem the best
solution to me.
