Allow multiline conditions and the like

This is a mini-proposal I piggy-tailed in the other topic:
Allow the conditions in the if-, elif-, while-, for-, and
with-clauses to span multiple lines without using a backlalsh
at the end of a line,
just like when you specify literal lists, tuples, dicts, etc.
across multiple lines (similar to comprehensions too).
because they all must end with a required colon ':',
so nobody will mistake it.
also, if we don't allow it, people just have to use
parenthesis around the expressions to make that happen.
Just a half-baked idea, appreciate all comments.
