"simple" line continuations

Lars Noschinski

I wanted to extend the mutt syntax file to support line continuations.
But as I found out, mutt(ng) supports line continuations /everywhere/
(they are probably filtered out by some kind of a preprocessor), so it
is possible to write:

news_server = ne\

instead of

set news_server = news.example.com

So is there an option to tell vim to process any "\\\n" as if it wasn't
there for syntax highlighting? (Of course it makes little sense to use
line continuation in keyords, but if there exists such an option it
would be the simplest and most correct solution for line continuation).
