Just wondering, does your tool also check for spaces before/after
punctuation like e.g. "? . ; :" ?
Or only for trailing spaces at the end of msgid/msgstr strings?
IMHO the checks should only be made for trailing spaces because
different languages have different punctuation rules (e.g. '?' demands
a preceding space in French, but not in English)
