I’m hungry already !

The “one rule” thing is a pretty big deal. What this means is that the only difference between a “classical” string and a “fat” string is the treatment of how it spans lines in the source — the escaping rules are the same. These new strings are clearly just the more stout sibling of classical strings — nothing new to learn (yet). I like that a lot.
