    Well, git-stripspace actually does something slightly differently, in that
    it also removes extraneous all-whitespace lines from the beginning, the
    end, and the middle (in the middle, the rule is: two or more empty lines
    are collapsed into one).

    Ie it's a total hack for parsing just commit messages (and it is in C,
    because I can personally write 25 lines of C in about a millionth of the
    time I can write 3 lines of perl).
