In this instance, I believe the OP was paragraphing his text. Is there
a convenient way to do that in a triple-quoted string?

My personal inclination would be to simply back-tab it. It looks ugly,
but at least it works, and doesn't require a run-time re-parse. The
run-time translation is good for docstrings, though (which are
syntactically the same thing as this situation).
