Excuse me for asking, but I can't find any text describing motivation 
for introduction of this method in JEP-355 other than "Developers will 
have access to this algorithm via String::stripIndent instance method"...

If I understand the JEP correctly, this is an algorithm that is applied 
to Text Blocks during compilation. Is this method intended for 
developers writing java compilers?

Regards, Peter
