Wait.  That doesn't make any sense.  I haven't seen *anyone* ask for plain
search to treat spaces as "just one SPC char".  AFAICT everybody is happy
with the behavior where a space in the search text is interpreted as "any
sequence of blank chars".

The only discussion here is about removing the "magic space" from
regexp-searches, not from plain searches.  Or did I miss something?
