Thanks, Bernt, for the historical perspective!

Truth is that I've been so agonizing for the whole of my computer life!
Each one his sickness, I guess... :-)

Keep happy!


P.S. Who, by the way, felt glad and relieved recently, seeing many
commits by Bastien correcting lots of spurious trailing white space. :-)

Should I say, I notice a strong correlation between rotten software and
the lack of attention to such details.  I'm not saying that avoiding
trailing white space is a guarantee of good software.  But I'm saying
that people unwilling to pay attention to details are not prone to pay
attention for a lot of other things, which is not good for software.
