if you want to make some micro optimization in the build install step,
sure ... but functionally, the difference is irrelevant considering
sed operates only on individual lines

no, there is no grouping marker anywhere, so the match always applies
to just the whitespace

a question that i think is really only relevant if it actually occurs
in the source code

so post a patch for inclusion ... not that it's been an actual problem
[yet] though
