How about:

The TERMINATOR may never contains ']]'.

This will make single line things work (as above) and:

multiline comment

(the terminating -- is of course optional, but I like them for visual symmetry :)


If one wants, '*'s can be used as terminators:

Mmmm, not so bright, it is incompatible with simple use of this string, like:
path = [[C:\Good Languages\Lua\Bright Script.lua]]

unless we make additional rules like:

Single line literal strings/comments use old syntax, multiline ones always starts with new line or HereDoc terminator.

Or we use foo = [[[TERMINATOR
but I like it less (more exceptions).
