\z is an absolutely wonderful feature of Lua strings, but having to break it with \x20 is mildly annoying. Compare:

      local foo = "USAGE\n\z
                   \x20   description."


      local foo = "USAGE\n\z
                   \    description."

So, yeah, it'd be nice to have the latter. It lines up the, well, lines, so makes it easier to read when looking through source code. (The other option is to bump the \x20 back but uh meh.)
