I have one mid-sized C++ project at work that's pretty much
exclusively under my control. There is precisely ONE place where
backslash continuations crop up, and that's long strings that want to
be formatted on multiple lines (eg huge SQL statements) - in Python,
they'd be trip-quoted. We don't have *any* backslash continuations in
Python code.
