I used to think the same, until I got sick and tired of having my code 
output strings like:

    a very very verylong value that continues on the next line

I learned the hard way that if I don't put the breaking space at the 
beginning of the next fragment, I probably wouldn't put it at the end of 
the previous fragment either.

YMMV, I'm just reporting what works for me.
