No, emacs is not as smart as it could be.  For instance I did
(query-replace-regexp " +" " " nil)
and it goes to all the single space areas like the spaces between
these words and asks if I want to replace one space with one space.
OK, maybe blame me instead for the weak regexp, but it is just a shame
to see emacs do something obviously not so smart.  Ok, I should use "  +".
Hmmm, well, at least it is acting correctly.  Probably safer than
making it over smart.  Ok, never mind.
