Are you asking for this in Python code or non-Python files? I think it 
already works like this in non-Python files. In Python files it is 
looking at which logical lines of Python the physical lines belong to it 
should not mix up separate logical lines.

Oh, I see it does mess this up if you are working within a doc string or 
triple quoted strings in Python code. Is that the case you're asking about?
