Right.  I thought both are necessary in this case: the first sentence
gives easy information to a first-timer.  For someone who has played
with it a bit, and wants to know more: the second line.

Yes, I've been meaning to discuss that.  I've been having some trouble
with multi-line strings: zsh doesn't insert a TAB in the next line.
The workaround I have is to write a shell script and execute that.
