Do you mean on a per-field basis?  Hm...  I'm not sure that's generally
useful -- when chopping down a field, there's often field-specific ways
to shorten things (i.e., just chopping the ends off of things isn't
always the best thing to do).

But in any case, it's orthogonal to whether to compact the white space,
which entails no information loss and can be done generally.  I think.
