Multiline template strings that don't break indentation

ALL of these things can be accomplished with your own custom tag. I really encourage you and others to learn about the "tag" part of "tagged template string".

This might be beyond the current state of template strings but wouldn't it be nice if there was a delimiter character we can use to depict the beginning of each line of a multiline string? A similar solution like Scala multliline strings but without `stripMargin` method at the end.

For example:

    var multiLineString = `This is a template string.
                                      |Even though each line is indented to keep the
                                      |code neat and tidy, the white space used to indent
                                      |is not in the resulting string`

And if we actually want to include vertical bar we can escape it?
