It could be. This would require putting the proper hooks/pre-commit file
in a .git directory. Should it check all files in the project, or only

See core.whitespace in the git-config manpage; by default git warns about
trailing whitespace. Commands that apply patches (e.g. git-apply and
git-am) have an option to control this; --whitespace=error or
--whitespace=fix might be what you want. This choice can be made
permanent by something like
# git config apply.whitespace error
Also look at the gitattributes manpage.
