No it wouldn't.  To be honest, I was quite surprised.  Of *course*
I tested the code before posting it, but I tested it as a "pure"
one-liner.  I only split the line to make it fit nicely in the message
editor.  My bad.

But I'm still not sure I understand why it doesn't work.  It looks like
a perfectly proper escaped newline to me.  What am I missing?
