I had a quick look, thanks, but my knowledge of the wiki code is too
limited to add this -- additionally, it isn't a trivial patch in case
you want to preserve correct line numbers for error messages.

Thus I ask you to add `\' as a line continuation.  It is extremely
ugly and error prone to be forced to use overlong lines -- something
which is not used normally in the UNIX world.
