[Haskell-cafe] dropSpace not exported in ByteString

Hi Don,

In fact I'm not really looking at performance, I don't expect performance to
be a big issue in my application.

I was just looking at using some simple functions found in the documentation
and avoid redefining them.

In fact dropSpace and dropSpaceEnd are doing exactly what I'm looking for.
But of course if they're not exported it's not a problem and I'll use their
dropWhile equivalent.

Thanks for your reply,
