Mostly don't like, but also it introduces a ambiguity in the language
especially since you could use your proposed variant in a single line as
I'd more prefer the $IncludeString directive for which there's still a
patch waiting in Mantis. With this the contents would be in separate file,
thus not only not cluttering the Pascal source, but also allowing the use
of an editor with syntax highlighting as in your example with the SQL.
