Explain the difference between these two triple-quoted strings:

Here is a triple-quoted string containing spaces and a triple-quote:

py> """ \""" """
' """ '

But remove the spaces, and two of the quotation marks disappear:

py> """\""""""

"""\"""" ""

Implicit string concatenation of an empty string.

I confess I try to have my quote delimiters distinct from any embedded quotes to avoid wanting backslashes. It is conincidental that my habit tends to sidestep the above issue.
