I'm -1 on making the backslash more attractive to use :-)
In most use cases, you can create much more readable code by using parenthesis, which easily allow spanning statements and expressions across multiple lines.
Those read better, work better in editors (automatic indentation) and are less error prone than the backslash.
If there are common use cases left which can currently not be handled by parens, I'd be +1 on fixing those.
I kind of agree with Marc-André.
