Hi all,
Jim, Brian,
please do not use the same name "Escape Sequences For Line Continuation and White Space (Preview)",
for two different features, one which is withdrawn (JDK-8227870) and one which is still alive (JDK-8233117).

I'm coming back from JokerConf in Russia and everybody there were in full confusion mode about that.

Moreover, my personal feeling is that we should stop to add such incremental niche feature, at least for now, and move to solve the real issue we have left, raw strings, because while i agree that de-coupling the two features text block and raw string was necessary, it also means that we still have no support for raw strings.
