[ddlm-group] Close quotes not followed by whitespace

CIF2 no longer skips close-quotes that are not followed by whitespace. I 
assume that close-quotes still need trailing whitespace, and that it is 
simply a syntax error for a close quote followed by non-whitespace.

Therefore, it should be possible to allow CIF1 input for backwards 
compatibility by accepting these invalid close-quotes on input. That 
should help minimize conflicts with adopting CIF2. The only input that 
would be misinterpreted would be a quote character written as """, most 
software will have written as '"', using the opposite quote character.

So, this:

;\
;\
;

is just a syntax error in CIF2, or can be accepted as a line-folded ";" 
in CIF1.

Joe
