Agreed, cuz I like Brian's suggestion. That said, I think
having another modifier character may be a better approach.

I don't like it... too much like robo-cop.
Hmm. Either Ryan or Steve suggested that we use letters
or even alpha strings, like... |fold,escape,chomp -- with
possible abbreviation like |f,e,c Given that the
case of a multi-line scalar, there is often a good amount
of space, perhaps the non-abbrev version would look good.
However, I tend to lock onto words as content, and thus I
feel that although fold, escape, chomp spelled out may be
intuitive it will also make the file hard to read as your
eye locks in on them rather than the content.
How 'bout the semi-colon?
