To my taste @Verbatim is a kludge.  It just uses sed to transform its
paramter into literal string escaping it properly.  Tough luck for
Win32 users that don't have sed installed on their machines.

I prefer to write verbatim text as literal strings myself.  For a
bigger verbatim material I'd use a makefile that would run sed itself
and @Include the result.

Note that @Verbatim is never used in lout own documentation.

I'd use

    @F lines @Break {
    "   text here"
