I'd like to see the default behaviour of a trim function to be to remove
characters where std::ctype<charT>::is(std::ctype_base::space,c) is true.
Thus I envisage a trim where the second argument is a locale with a
default argument of std::locale(). A trim with a string of characters
to be trimmed might be another overload:

template <class String>
void trim( String &s, const std::locale &loc = std::locale() );

template <class String>
void trim( String &s, typename String::const_pointer charsToTrim );
