As I can see it either we enforce no trailing whitespace or we
do not. I can't see any reasonable middle ground.

I'm of course for no trailing whitespace. :-)
However I'm not going to start a new flamewar other it...

The orginal reason for winapi_cleanup was to convert the \r\n 
that I got while editing in Micrsoft Developer studio
to \n.

But I can modify it the so it only does that.

It should probably remove trailing whitespace at lines
ending in \ though since some compilers choke on that.
