I put three concatenation operators into Datatrieve -- strict
concatenate, concatenate after suppressing trailing blanks, and
concatenate with exactly one interventing space (aka junk mail concatenate).

That aside, would it make more sense to have an operator (or function)
that simply ditched the null? The proliferation and combination of
concatenate options makes one shudder.
