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:
Usage: some-tool.py [arguments...]
Does this and that based on its arguments"""
This way usage immediately stands out much better, without any
unnecessary new lines.
