IMO it's not a silly reason, because after intensively reworking some
code I often waste quite a bit of time to reduce the size of the patch
by reading such trailing whitespace (esp. the ones that are alone on a
single line). It also helps people committing patches from other people
who do not want to add such whitespace.
