They are different for a reason, I guess:
The first one matches lines that only have spaces (it fails
spectacularly with lines that have a mix of TAB vs. SPACE characters
though, unless you pre-expand TABs).
The second one only removes trailing SPACEs from a line.
Yes, you are correct.
However, the latter of those regexps should do the job of the former,
so Kyrre was also right.
I just play safe with regexps.
