I get extremely annoyed with editors that *don't* leave
whitespace at the end of lines alone, at least while
you're working on the file. You type part of a line,
leave a space, go to copy something from somewhere else
to put on the end, and when you get back, the space you
deliberately left there is gone.

Stripping trailing whitespace on saving wouldn't be
so bad, though. Is there an option for that in python-mode?
