I'm not sure I like that.  C-q <something> should insert <something>,
not stuff that means what you might have intended.  So I'm happy with
the current C-q behaviour.

I didn't know about the special behaviour of <space> in
isearch-forward-regexp.  Given that the behaviour is not new, adding
information to the doc-string seems like the right thing to do.  I
believe no further changes are necessary.
