I'm doing a fair amount of packaging and gbs-building right now, and I'd
glad to implement and test this.  I don't have any opinion about which
the best method for submitting the changes.

Almost all of the trailing \'s can be removed, but a little more care is
needed in removing the &&'s, because these have a desirable effect of
stopping the processing as soon as an error occurs.  In most places this
isn't needed, but in some places it's useful.
