Sorry, I must be short of caffeine today ;-) can you give me an
example where replacing an unescaped newline with || exit $? works but
replacing it with && does not?  That's all we are talking about yes?

I don't object to || exit $? btw, just want to be clear on what the
percieved problem is with using && instead.
