Thanks for the feedback, Greg!

I'm afraid I'm unassigning this;  I don't have time for it right now, and 
I'm not sure I'm the right person to do this anyway.

One problem that I was having when I looked at this:  I don't think I 
understand what the intended use of replace_whitespace=False is in the 
first place.  Given that a typical piece of (English) text only contains 
the ' ', '\t' ad '\n' whitespace characters, if expand_tabs is True (the 
default), then it seems that newline characters are the only ones affected 
by replace_whitespace=False.

How is replace_whitespace=False expected to be used currently?
