Come to think of it, whitespace is a misnomer, a relic of offices with
white paper.  As I type, "whitespace" is indeed black on one screen,
red on another, grey on another, etc.
$ man perlre|grep -c white
Worse is whitelisting/blacklisting etc. Or maybe let's just accept
it. [OK perldudes, close this bug that I hereby opened.]
