Fix values with multiple spaces

Reported by: naoliv Owned by: team

While JOSM already removes multiple consecutive spaces from inserted/modified values, could it also validate and fix them when the tag isn't modified?

For example, something that is already in OSM as:

name = Something␢␢Foo (␢␢ = two spaces)

If I edit this value JOSM will automatically remove the unnecessary duplicated space (leaving only one).
But if I validate my data without editing this key, the two spaces will stay there in the data.

It would be good if JOSM could detect and fix them, even if the user doesn't modify the value.

Or at least have a warning for it not triggering on upload but if you run validator manually.

Worksforme. I get a warning and the fix button when I validate an unmodified way with multiple spaces in key or value.
