When Python started to emulate the other languages?

Who cares about what other languages do? Python uses `raise` instead of `throw`, even if `throw` is much more popular in the most used languages, only because `raise` in English has more sense. 

And IMHO a newbie that see a multi-string in the code does not read the documentation. It's evident that is a multi-string. And it expects that it acts as in English or any other written language, that is the text is *that* one that (s)he read.

On the contrary, if (s)he reads 


maybe (s)he thinks "this must be something different", and read the docs.
