Is the only issue with this feature that you might accidentally miss a comma
after a string in a sequence of strings? That seems like a significantly
obscure scenario compared to the usefulness of the current syntax, for
exactly the purpose Barry points out (which most people use all the time).

I think the runtime concatenation costs are less important than the
handiness of being able to break strings across lines without having to
figure out where to put that '+' operator.
