Please review the following CSR. Provides for the introduction of two new escape sequences \<line-terminator> and \s.  \<line-terminator> allows developers to express unwieldy string literals in a text block as a cluster of short single line segments. The second is to allow developers to express ASCII space, much like \t for tab.

Thank you.
