Yes, under Oracle 7.x  this does break index usage, however
Oracle states that in 8.x and 9.x query execution has been improved
and LTRIM and RTRIM in most cases does not break index usage
any more.
But still storing data in one style (with trailing spaces) and then
trying to look it up by another style (without spaces) sounds a bad
practice to me...
