This has already been rejected, because it doesn't address the main use
cases -- most multi-line snippets still want to have quotes in them
(SQL, JSON, XML, etc), and thus would still have to be escaped.

Thought that's not actually what I proposed. What I've proposed is to
start with a choice of "1" or "1a", the latter being "1 with intelligent
reflow." So your preference for 1 over 1a is recorded!
