I agree with all you said. I’m fairly sure I would never vote for Brent’s proposal simply because of the existence of continuation quotes, no matter the amount of reasoning behind it. They are simply too unwieldy, cumbersome and unfriendly to modification.

I could see either your proposal, or your proposal without the HERE_DOCs but using Tyler’s/Scala’s .stripMargin. Do you think you could start a formal proposal?
