Heh--not to bikeshed, but my personal preference is to leave the trailing space on the first line. This is because by the time I've started a new line (and possibly have spent time fussing with indentation for the odd cases that my editor doesn't get quite right) I'll have forgotten that I need to start the line with a space :)
I agree that the first version of the example, with space after 'very', before the quote, is better.
I used to think the same, until I got sick and tired of having my code output strings like:
a very very verylong value that continues on the next line
I learned the hard way that if I don't put the breaking space at the beginning of the next fragment, I probably wouldn't put it at the end of the previous fragment either.
YMMV, I'm just reporting what works for me.
