I think that a soft newline, most particularly so in the context of
longlines.el, should pretty much be a space with a display property of
newline on it, so search and replace would not even see it as anything
but space.

If that's not doable, it should at the very least be in all the same
categories as a normal space when doing regexp (and possibly other)
