Re: suggestion for multiline keyval...

Rather than adding a requirement about the interpretation of integers
as the value of a multiline keyword-value pair, one could simply note
the idea.  For example, text the about the value of multiline
keyword-value pair could be changed to:

 If there is an asterisk after the keyword in a keyword-value pair, the
 value is multiline. Although a simple value is required syntactically,
 it will be ignored. (Typically the empty string, "", is used.  Some
 implementations interpret a positive integer as a hint as to the
 number of lines to expect.)
