Additionally, if you don't want to include newlines inside
your string (opposed to what the above suggestion does),
then you can simply break the string constants into multiple
parts and use line continuation, like this:
>>> s = "%s " \
... "%s " \
... "%s " % \
'foo bar baz '
Note that you don't have to use explicit backslashes within
the parentheses of the tuple (they wouldn't hurt, though).
