We support multi-line strings and multi-line XML. Simply, lines that
doesn't look like assignments are the continuation of the last line.
Like this is allowed:

s=a
b
c
x=
<doc a='1'>
 <p>foo</p>
 <p>foo</p>
</doc>

However, I have just noticed that I fail to mention that under the
"Data model (show examples)" link. Ops... will have to be fixed.

Anyway, it's not an entirely general purpose syntax, as what if your
multi line text has a line that looks like an assignment... so there's
still place for """ or such.
