The config file parser breaks the input into lines before scanning to see what
keywords are actually on those lines. The syntax of the config file has been
documented to behave this way for over 10 years. Nobody else has cared to
change it until now...
Of course, all of that is going to be phased out as we move to pure LDIF in
the future. (Which again, requires a leading space character for line
continuations. And again, is a well documented feature of the format.)
