Caring too much about trailing whitespace is IMO a good way to waste
time. Just make sure to not commit trailing whitespace, and remove
trailing whitespace on lines you change, and that's fine. Having an
editor automatically remove trailing whitespace on save just breaks
git-blame and pollutes diffs.
