Well, my main use of inline strings are for things like registry key and 
directory settings on Windows, or regular expressioin strings where I 
want to use the \ char normally. So I often need single-line verbatim 
strings.

My advice here is to pick a format that is general enough to handle both 
inline and multi-line situations. It's not hard. That way the need to 
decide inline vs multiline doesn't even come up.

Or don't include this feature at all. There are more important features 
to spend time on, like modules.
