        Actually I think I just hit ESC-v and re-edited the text
that way.  Thinking about it -- if I am doing a 'one-liner in the shell,
I often don't use indentation and sometimes semi's instead of LF's.  But
when I put the whole thing up on a screen because my one-liner didn't work,
I'll usually indent it to make it clear.

        Then I just exit -- no artificial insertions or reinvoking bash..
