I would very much like to implement python-style multi-line string literals in swift (not to be confused with slightly more complex heredoc style syntax). Strings would be started by a triple quote and ended by a triple quote, potentially with any consistent internal indentation stripped from the resulting string.
Something to the effect of:
Is there any interest, and if so is there any code I would need to touch outside of lib/Parse/Lexer.cpp? I only have a basic understanding of C++ and don't grok SourceKit in any way whatsoever.
My main motivation is to make the use of DocOpt style command-line parsing significantly more pleasant. To see an example of what I mean, please check out http://docopt.org/
