I use heredocs in my programs primarily for documentation that is output
in answer to command line options, because:

1. It looks prettier in the source, and stands out more as separate from
the rest of the code, than other string quoting mechanisms.

2. It allows me to use both ASCII apostrophes and ASCII double quotes in
these documentation strings without cluttering up the text with escape
character backslashes.
