### Bug with raw literals?

On cloud.sagemath, the following is interpreted as an empty string

r"""\
"""


According to the python docs, Section 2.4.1 of the language specification:: "Note also that a single backslash followed by a newline is interpreted as those two characters as part of the literal, not as a line continuation."

Is this a bug? Or am I missing something?
