I don't know if I can vote, but if I could I'd be -1 on this. Can't say I'm using continuation often, but there's one case when I'm using it and I'd like to continue using it:
#!/usr/bin/env python """\ Usage: some-tool.py [arguments...] Does this and that based on its arguments""" if condition: print __doc__ sys.exit(1)
This way usage immediately stands out much better, without any unnecessary new lines.
Me too, all the time.
