I attached text-blocks-jls.html which contains the current unified text
blocks + new escape sequences spec. Edited the CSR's Specification
section refer specifically to section 3.10.7 of the attachment rather
than reproducing some of that section. Made some small edits elsewhere
related to having only two bold questions (corresponding to two new
escapes) in the Problem.

>>> 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.
