Ok, I see what you mean. Good point.

This is really tricky as the backslash/newline's are removed at the lowest
level possible - in the lexer. I'm not sure if we're able to re-create this
particular formatting. Let me think about this for a while. Perhaps I can
coerce the lexer to (optionally) retain this information inside macro
expansion sequences.
