That was exactly my point: such lines shouldn't exist, and rather than
including the trailing space and following it with a character that then
needs removing, it seems more sensible to me to omit the trailing space
and insert it via an almost identical sed line.  Git already helps
ensure that trailing space won't exist on *any* line, including those; I
don't see how an extra character after the space (making it no longer
trailing space) makes it any more or less likely that those lines would
have trailing space.

In any case, I don't care enough to argue the point further; it was just
a style suggestion.
