I'm seeing some merit in this for quite some stuff which annoys us by requiring a dedicated file. I'm just a bit anxious about how this can steer from the original intent, with users seeing it as a way to inline code anywhere, then complaining that we don't have multi-line strings nor 64kB long lines :-/ I'm interested in other opinions on this as well.
