It does what was asked for here: Removes extra spaces.

What you are asking for is "Remove extra spaces, except where there are two
spaces between sentences". The hard part is to detect "between sentences".
Otherwise you could amend my algoritm with a "replace all <period><space>
with <period><em space>. But the sequence <period><space> may be present in
other places than between sentences.

So, my take is that if you want double spaces between sentences, there is
no easy way to remove all other extra spaces.
