You can't copy/paste multiline scripts into system shell either,
unless you append "\".
It's likely that similar problems exists in a lot of other interactive
shells (ruby?).
And that makes sense to me, because they are supposed to be used interactively.
It might be good to change this? Maybe.
Is the current behavior objectively wrong? No, in my opinion.
