[wingide-users] Strip trailing whitespace?

I was just looking through the archives and saw this message.

Instead of binding this to a key, is it possible to add it to the
editor context menu (right click) or some other menu?  I don't need
this functionality often, but when I do I would like a way to call the
rstrip command.
