7. Error messages spanning multiple LOC
    $ python sample.py
    Traceback (innermost last):
      File "sample.py", line 3, in ?
        print "this" + \
    NameError: oops
    $ cat sample.py
    #!/usr/bin/env
    
    print "this" + \
          "that" + \
          oops

    It should say:
    Traceback (innermost last):
      File "sample.py", line 3, in ?
        print "this" + \
              "that" + \
              oops
    NameError: oops

regards,
Gerrit.
