I know it's mostly a matter of style, but I prefer to add parenthesis and  
avoid line continuation characters. Sometimes I use parenthesis for  
strings too, when multiline strings are not a good choice:

txt = ("En un lugar de "
        "la Mancha, de cuyo "
        "nombre no quiero "
        "acordarme, no ha "
        "mucho tiempo...")

(A multiline string would keep the inner \n but in this case I don't want  
that)
