I applied this (even though it might have been easier to do it myself).
And of course I noticed that in each and every case where you broke a
line you left trailing whitespace behind.

Granted, this isn't a big deal in a text input file, but still...

Recommendation for everyone:

git config --global diff.color auto

then if you do a git show on your commit, the trailing whitespace (and a
few other whitespace issues) will be blaringly obvious :-)
