Description:the description of ast_trim_blanks() says it returns a pointer
to the terminating NUL (misspelled as NULL), but in fact it returns
a pointer to the original string.

The return argument is never used at the moment, so we have 3 possible fixes:
1. work as documented; it is a bit tricky, and probably pointless because
  i am not sure anyone is really interested to this info;
2. correct the documentation to match the code. Note however that returning
  the original argument as the code does now is not really useful - the
  caller has it already availble;
3. update documentation and code and make the function return void.
I think my vote would go for #3.
