[Twisted-Python] M-x customize-group whitespace

Silly point that only a bunch of emacs-thumping Python wonks would
make.  Should/may I put a bit in the Whitespace section of the
CodingStandard about emacs' whitespace-cleanup mode?  Point being that
it doesn't let you leave trailing whitespace on the end of (possibly
empty) lines or trailing lines at the end of file.  Being consistent
about this would cut down on spurious file-modified flags from CVS.

See C-h f whitespace-describe if unfamiliar.

The only evil thing about it is that if you don't disable
whitespace-check-indent-whitespace, it'll, um, use tabs.
