[xsl] Remove adjacent whitespace when removing element

Subject: [xsl] Remove adjacent whitespace when removing element

I'm writing a little simple XSLT that translates one Xml to another
and I am cherry picking items from the first Xml for the new Xml and
doing an assortment of other things as well.  All is fine and dandy,
but I'd like to trap the whitespace along with the elements that I am
removing, instead I am getting big gaps in my resulting Xml.  I
reallize that I can turn off indent, but what would be the way to
remove the related whitespace of an element that has been removed?  So

<a>this is a</a>
<b>this is b</b>
<c>this is c</c>

If I trap b <xsl:template match="b"/> and do nothing with it my result
looks like:

<a>this is a</a>

<c>this is c</c>
