-1 on such new syntax.
What i usually do is:
message = ("yada yada\n"
"more yada yada\n"
"even more yada.")
This works a lot like what you suggest, but with Python's current syntax. If
implicit string concatenation were removed, I'd just add a plus sign at the
end of each line.
This is also a possibility:
message = "\n".join([
"more yada yada",
"even more yada."])
The latter would work even better with the removal of implicit string
concatenation, since forgetting a comma would cause a syntax error instead
of skipping a newline.
