1481 - Exported multi-line phrases do not parse in WAR

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a phrase with multiple lines
2. Export the phrase as a simple table, shown as a table
3. Copy the output
4. Prepend "test=" and paste the output at the top of a file in an active mod
5. Reload the WAR UI

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect the exporter to give output that parses.  L"Line1\nLine2\Line3" would be acceptable, for instance.
I get output that the WAR LUA engine doesn't understand: L[=[Line1

At what time and date (year, month, day) did you get this bug? (Include your timezone)
2009-06-01 23:01 GMT-5

Please provide any additional information below.
The error message I get is:
Error Reading Lua buffer Interface/AddOns\MGRemix\Localization.lua [string "Interface/AddOns\MGRemix\Localization.lua"]:2:'}' expected (to close '{' at line 1) near '='
When I paste
 test= L[=[Drag
at the top of Localization.lua
