Looks like skipping the leading whitespace is an undocumented behavior for eval() introduced back in 1992 (f08ab0ad158f88f05dd923b129d2397e1882be14). I don't think that bringing it to the literal_eval is a good idea, at least after this much of a time. If so, both of them should be explicitly documented or at least mentioned in the source code (to avoid confusion).
