I think it would be good as an option, but the default should stay as it is.
Continuation lines in sh are used in many more cases than in Lisp.
Quite often they're used to spread command arguments on several lines,
in which case indentation is really what you want.

Maybe a compromise would be to do the following: if the "\\\n" is preceded
by a space or a tab, then the following line should be indented, otherwise
it should be left untouched.
