[aur-general] Backslash to split lines in `depends` array

I was trying to update my AUR packages with `aura`  † and get the
aura >>= Determining dependencies...
aura >>= Dependency checking failed for these reasons:
The dependency `\` could not be found. You may need to search for a
package to satisfy it.
This is due to the following lines in `octave-hg`  PKGBUILD:
depends=('fftw>=3.2.2' 'curl' 'fltk' 'hdf5' 'glpk' 'arpack' 'gl2ps' \
'qrupdate' 'qscintilla' 'qhull' 'graphicsmagick' 'java-environment')
The problem doesn't seem to appear with `yaourt`  . So before filling a
bug request to `aura`, I wanted to be sure that it is allowed/common to use
`\` to split lines in the `depends` array?
If it is not the case, I will post a comment on the `octave-hg` AUR page to
ask to remove the backslash.
† Also tested with `aura-git`, the problem still exists.
