There should not be any trailing whitespace in the GIMP source code. We
have several times trimmed away all trailing whitespace and committed
these cleanups. If new trailing whitespace sneaked in, then we should
probably do that again. Now that git warns about trailing whitespace, we
have a good chance to finally end this disease.
I will commit another global whitespace cleanup later today.
