Yes, thats pretty much how it works

AFAICS it never took line continuation into account.  I generalised the
character set that a keyword can have.  It happens to include - / and =
(and [0-9]).  If you had done:

set args --foo --bar= \
    baz --xyzzy=/some/path.ext

baz would have had a keyword face.
