I thought split'd still split on /\s+/ by default? $string.split is easy
to use, and because join uses ' ' by default (this is my interpretation
of the /lists in scalar context/ thread), $string.split.join trims all
excess whitespace, even between words. Handy :)
trim would be nice though, because I miss BASIC's ltrim and rtrim.
Perhaps those can be written as trim(:left) and trim(:right),
abbreviated to trim :l and trim :r?
