    new feature: config line ending with " \" continues at the next line

    It's not really my business, but that doesn't sound like a backwards-compatible
    change. What if somenoe had in their config file

    Inbound \fido\in\
    Outbound \fido\out\

    Ah, good point! I didn't notice the leading-space there.

    Yeah. ;)

    However, splitting config lines that way may break some old 3rd party utils.

    I added this feature for the only reason: I want to have a possibility of using
    lines of 80 characters long in a sample config in the documentation, so the lines are not stripped after the text is exported to pdf. Therefore one can use
    in real life a sample config with line continuations. But it is not meant for regular use. After any change in a line with continuations, all continuations will be appended to the first part of the line forming a line without continuations. So one should not use line continuations to make a config look nicer.

    This explains a lot but i'm afraid this would require detailed documentation or
    it would lead to confusion.

    In the distance i can see the bug reports coming: " \" not working properly...

    A fair remark. I updated documentation.
