I think you'd be hard-pressed to find any Unix-based tool in which a
space after a backslash didn't prevent that backslash from being used
as a continuation character. E.g., in the shell,
would echo "xxx yyy", but
would echo "xxx ".
In general, the backslash changes the meaning of the character immediately
following it. If the newline character does not immediately follow the
backslash, then you haven't changed its meaning, and in the context of
a configuration file, a newline marks the end of an attribute definition.
