I doubt we'll consider changing it. If I haven't missed any of the
details, the critical points here are
(1) User names containing trailing (or embedded) spaces are legal.
Not a very good idea maybe, but legal both per SQL spec and per
our historical practice.
(2) Making ECPG strip trailing spaces would render it unable to
connect as such a user.
I don't think ECPG has any business deciding that trailing spaces are
insignificant. If that's the case in your application environment,
fine: strip the spaces at the application level. But don't expect a
general-purpose library to make that policy choice for you.
