Add a pre-commit hook to remove trailing whitespace from commits before committing them

do we really need this? I haven't seen much trailing white space any time recently.

Yes, otherwise it keeps coming back and Jer and I keep slowly removing it, but it makes diffs from us a lot more annoying to read.

This has to be done individually on everyone's machine, there's no way to push one out automatically as far as I can tell.

Creating a file 'pre-commit' in the .git/hooks directory under your repo that looks like this:

Will do it.
