consider a record like this:

quantity: 4

Now, if I use a single space between the colon and the number, it is removed
from the output of recsel -P quantity.  Good.

But if I use a tab, the tab appears in the output.  That seems wrong.

If I use multiple spaces+tabs (quantity:   4), all of them after the first

Trailing spaces (quantity: 4   ) also appear.

I suggest that recfix check for multiple spaces, especially trailing ones.  It
would be nice if it could also fix it, but that looks like new functionality,
so I suppose it's fine to leave it for the user.  Not like it's hard.

(This is my last report for the present, yay :)
