I would like it if CR broke symbols, and was significant in strings, provided
it could be made invisible by some "continuation" syntax (perhaps \ which
I think has been proposed to do that?).
It would also be nice if there were a distinction between right and left
string delimiters (e.g., for debugging purposes) just as between list
delimiters. I realize standard charset does not encourage such a
distinction. Perhaps $" for left" (thats a dollar) and "$ for right" ...
altho that is more to type. (View this not so much as a specific
proposal, but as a problem I wish I knew how to solve.)
