Changes in whitespace are optionally ignored.

The value of `compare-windows-whitespace' may instead be a function; this
function is called in each buffer, with point at the current scanning point.
The function's job is to categorize any whitespace around (including before)
point; it should also advance past any whitespace.

The function is passed one argument, the point where `compare-windows'
was originally called; it should not consider any text before that point.
If the function returns the same value for both buffers, then the
whitespace is considered to match, and is skipped.")
