This one should be off limits: the discussion on the github led to a consensus that
local and remote URIs are actually okay to be merged into single "src:". One can,
if really wanted, write some sort of escape, but all bets are off.

Also, I think the pod escape sequences not necessarily should be applicable here.
If, as Russ suggests in another thread, use a full YAML vs YAML-like, which I like a lot,
then YAML escaping should be done then, whatever the YAML standard dictates.

Also, I was wrong about multiline =for, it pretty much exists. So one can do just this:

=for image
