    Yes, there are some functionalities that whitespace.el doesn't have,
    that is, trim-defines (well, is this function useful?) and untrim-lines.
    Both functions can be implemented in whitespace.el.

Please make the useful extensions suggested by trim.el.

Well, I agree with Dan Nicolaescu that these functions are not so useful.

trim-defines seems to have a very specific usage.

untrim-lines only adds ^M at end of each line.
It seems the only usage should be to deal with CR LF for Windows text files,
probably when Emacs didn't deal with end of line depending on the environment,
that is, a very very long time ago.

All other functions are already implemented in whitespace.el,
except trim-spaces which seems to be a variant of just-one-space function.
