In Wing 3.1beta3 we added a preference to this automatically as files
are saved.  If you want to just do it on demand, add the following to
a script:

import wingapi
def rstrip_now():
rstrip_now.contexts = [wingapi.kContextEditor()]
rstrip_now.label = "Strip trailing white space"

This should be in a file in DIRNAME/scripts/myscript.py where DIRNAME is
your user settings dir, which is listed 5th in Wing's About box, and
of course myscript can be replaced with any other name and you can
rename the script and change the label as desired.
