Most togglable search variables should preferably have two versions
anyway: the default value (persistent in case of `defcustom') used
initially for every new search (and often consulted in toggling
commands to get the initial default value) and a transient value
used in the currently active search.
This is what `case-fold-search' and `isearch-case-fold-search'
already do and this is a flexible approach. I intend to
implement the same approach for other search variables as well,
e.g. adding `search-filter-predicates' to hold the default value
for `isearch-filter-predicates'. The prefix `search-' is more
appropriate for such variables when they are used outside of isearch.
So `isearch-filter-predicates' could be used to incrementally
add/remove filters in isearch-mode, but to use `search-filter-predicates'
in `query-replace', etc.
