There is already "Case-Insensitive Search" option in Options menu.
But putting "Word Search" option in Options menu is a possible source
of confusion: users might forget about it after turning it on, and later
wonder why normal search can't find a part of the word.  Also note that
word search and replace are not very useful.  In source code they often
don't work as intended.  What is more useful are not \b delimiters,
but \_< and \_> to match symbols instead of words.
