      They should be nearly equiv., with the only difference being the
      "\+" version *requires* that the line start with whitespace (one
      or more whitespace characters) whereas the "*" version allows the
      line to start without -whitespace. This also finds *all* the
      non-leading whitespace on the line. If you want just the first
      space, A.S. Budden posed a good solution.
