Checking for tabs I could get behind; checking for trailing whitespace not
so much.

I've never understood why folks get worked up over a little trailing
whitespace here and there, since you can't see it and it doesn't affect
correctness. Spurious whitespace changes that make a review harder - those
are annoying. Trailing whitespace inadvertently left on lines where
legitimate changes were made in a patch - doesn't seem too harmful to me.
