No, only deletes spaces at the beginning of the line. The module would 
need a parser of JS to delete those spaces.

The target is deleted unnecesary spaces very-very fast in dynamic 
elements (ex: html pages). We treated JS files like static and, 
therefore, we processed them (ex: jsmin) before and store them in the 
disc already clean and GZed.
