I have a wide variety of away messages. Some of them are song
lyrics or poetry. However, I need to divide the lines / Using
slashes like this / Which ruins much of the effect. I would love to
be able to have these messages send on multiple lines in one
message.

    Wouldn't <br> work in this case? At least as a temporary solution.

    As discussed in [ 802213 ] Can't enter carriage returns into
    Away messages, option-return does the trick. In addition,
    since some clients do not understand this, it is recommended
    to have at least one space at the end of each line.

    Developers, should we put this into the readme/help files?
