The example you use in you previous post:
=== This is \
a test ===
Is not a real use case. Headings should and are usually short, and use
bigger type. I don't think you will find a good heading which does fit
in a browser window but does not fit in a reasonable sized editor
== I'm a very very long heading that might span on multiple lines when
== I'm a very very long heading that span on multiple lines when

don't consider me as good heading ==
When writing paragraphs, newlines are converted to spaces. For example
are formatted as:
<p>First line, second line.</p>
The only problem with long lines is tables markup, which suck in
general for wide tables.
Try to find real use cases when '\' is needed.
