One blog might want the permalink structure to be

/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/  (trailing slash)

another might want instead

/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%  (no trailing slash).

user_trailingslashit() makes whatever URL you pass to it consistent
with that preference as set in Settings > Permalinks.

Does that make sense?
