A couple of ideas come to mind:
* Allow implicit line continuations anywhere you have what
is obviously a syntactically incomplete structure (e.g.
an expression ending with a binary operator).
* Allow a statement to have indented continuation lines.

Do you really need both "then" and "do" there? Seems a
tad wordy to me.
By the way, I really like the idea of having relational
DB constructs integrated with the language. Few things
suck more ferociously than embedded SQL, in my opinion!
I wish you luck!
