Unterminated string literal

Sometimes I stumble on weird errors.

This was one of those days.

Basically hit some “Unterminated string literal” issues that didn’t point me to any line or even file, and the cause of the problem was I had some logic before an import

A weird problem since the editor would yell at me anyway, if I had some unterminated strings.

Removing this logic, keeping all the imports at the top, made the error go away.
