I saw a patch get committed recently that just fixes trailing whitespace
across a large swath of the codebase.

In general, we prefer that pure style cleanups are only done as a precursor
to actually modifying the code. Otherwise, while they serve to make the
style consistent, they also make it considerably harder to dig through the
commit history for a given chunk of code.
