Yes, but it seems that if you're moving from

  (string-trim "stuff" " ")

to some

  (string-trim "stuff" " " #:repeated? #t)

then you could just as well go with

  (string-trim "stuff" #rx" +")

instead.  IOW, a keyword is possible, but doesn't seem useful given
that the intention is for this to be a function that is simple and/or

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
