Hmmmm... yes, good point. But my fault, I think. I've added the escaping
variant \\ in take 3 of the patch but  only the half way. When it doesn't
exists, line continuation is ok.  But when it exists, it means an escaped
backslash and in more detail: It means only one(!) backslash. So, when I add
this functionality (the escape-backslash is stripped), are you then happy,
