Thanks! How is the package called? I don't see it list-packages :/
This sounds pretty similar to the solution I outlined before, though. The
problem that I ran into with python is that I also need to "reopen" the quotes
or comments. For example. a bit of code might be in the middle of a docstring,
What a great example!
The issue here is that “What a great example” is a string. I tried using a
syntactic face function to mark the last ‘>’ as a strong closer and the newline
as a string opener, but that confused the existing function, which expects the
docstring starter to be ‘"""’, not ‘\n’. Even after fixing this, python-mode
was unusable: it inflooped when trying to find a whole defun, because the
nav-end-of-defun function isn't ready to accept ‘\n’ as a string starter.
