That is the goal: If only "spaces", strip it to ''.
I know there is a built-in stripping utility, but as I said,
I simplified the problem.

That will not achieve our final goal.
Wa want to consider "only spaces" as ''.

The problem is if I enter manu spaces in the form, and just that,
it's not matched. already tested in ipython interactive promt,
the logic is OK.
