I'll take that as a "no" then :-) ? Personally, I like my editor 
(SlickEdit), and have that setting explicitly to "on" as I don't like 
trailing whitespace. Didn't know it would interfere this much with CVS 
diffs though...

See attached. Not *all* whitespace changes have been removed, some where in 
blocks with actual changes. I applied this patch to my original mythmusic 
tree, and a diff -b -B showed no changes to the tree the original diff came 

If this is ok, I'll do the same with my two other patches.
