One more note on this: The above example only works because the "\n" is
not the first character of the keyword. If the keyword takes precedence
over context switches was implemented consequently for single character
keywords as well there shouldn't be *any* context changes in the
"context exclusive" example I've given as both ' and " are defined as
keywords in the default context (even before the context definitions).
