Actually, yes. :)

That was the root cause of a long-standing exmh bug where GPG
signatures on replies would be corrupted - the trailing blank got
included in the GPG checksum generation calculation, but at the
remote end the canonical text (minus the trailing blank) got used
in the verification.  I ended up hacking around it in exmh by
basically doing the moral equivalent of sed 's/[ ]*$//'
