Editors won't catch unused imports...

If "encouraging" people to set their editors to strip trailing whitespace hasn't worked for nearly 20 years, why not just setup a job to automatically strip trailing whitespace (say) once a month?

We have been "encouraging" people to set their editors for nearly two decades and it just doesn't work.

That would encourage people to properly set up their editor to never get trailing spaces in the first place!
