BTW, re-reading this, I see it could be taken as a personal attack, so
I want to clarify that I consider Emacs to be full of ugly hacks and
that a significant proportion of them come directly from me:
sometimes it's still the best we can come up with :-(

But I obviously still think in this case that the choice of leaving the
text on subsequent lines (after a string with no \ nor closing ")
highlighted as if they were part of the string is a much better option.
