We definitely need a multi-line string solution, and I’m a fan of the python-like “”” solution.

This is Largely the same as python, with the addition of leading-space stripping, the lack of which is one of the biggest gripes I’ve had and seen with python’s “”” implementation.

Followed both the original discussion and the recent revival closely.
