[Mailman-Users] msg_footer and standard message signature question

we have stumbled upon a problem, that in msg_footer,
Mailman discards the space at the end of the signature delimiter "-- ",
which should be two dashes and space,
according to http://www.guckes.net/mail/sig.etiquette.html#sigdashes
the code (Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py) says
text = re.sub(r' *\r?\n', r'\n', template % d)
so all the spaces before newline are eaten by the regex:
is there any specific reason to strip the spaces?
The previous version of mailman just changed \r\n to \n ...
We want to correct the signature problem, but we don't want any
thanks and regards,
