[Tutor] Multi-line statements with comments

I just realized that, even simpler than joining a string split
into a list of substrings, in order to comment each part,
is to take advantage of the syntax which concatenates
strings if they simply appear in sequence e.g.
"hello " "world" becomes "hello world".
Combine this feature with the grouping characters ( ), which
give you multilines without use of \, and you've got a way to
comment a multi-line string sans use of join():
>>> mystr = ("the" # another way to comment
" " # a multiline string
"end") # check it out!
