This is a safer approach IMO.

Certainly munging them for readability would be good, though.

One other option, that might be more generally usable, is to modify the 
config file parser to strip the indent present on the 1st from 2nd and 
subsequent lines when using continuations. At the moment, this:

some_query = "select foo from \
               bar where x=1"


"select foo from               bar where x=1"

...whereas the more intuitive result is:

"select foo from bar where x=1"

I think this is what leads to the whitespace in debugged SQL queries?
