I haven't the slightest idea how to toggle it, which of course is the
important question.  But I do have an idea: for regexp searches, if
while I'm typing my regexp, and I type a space, and this feature is
on, it'd be lovely if Emacs would simply insert the appropriate regexp
for whitespace -- such as \s-+ -- into the mini-buffer.  That way I
will learn a bit more about regexps.
