Hm. This has escaped me.
I don't find the rationale as documented on the Wikipage
very convincing at all. I've thus added a few more cons:
* string gaps are sometimes really helpful for
formatting/pretty printing code
neatly; the ++ alternative often necessecitates additional
* the simplification of the lexical syntax is very minor
* arguably, the syntax highlighting ought to be fixed as that's what
at fault, not the language as such
I have to confess I find string gaps rather elegant, and I think any
sensible language ought to have them!
