I recommend that ~<cr> mean "ignore the <cr> and all following whitespace".
Let the : modifier mean "but retain the whitespace" and @ mean
"but retain the <cr>". Thus ~:@<cr> is the same as a bare <cr>.
The point is that the commonest case is easiest to type, and
the next most common cases easier to type than the useless case.
