Thank you very much.  Looks good!

I didn't notice that - until I read your adaption, that a sequence of
words matches the same sequence of words (in the same order).  Should we
speak that out more explicitly?  Though, I understood it.

BTW, it seems that non-(Ruby) word chars are not just ignored.  For
example, with the query "el-search-emacs-elisp-sources" I find Bug#37321
(expected) but with "el search emacs elisp sources" I don't get a match
(unexpected for me).  Do you know more?

You mean without :-P

Thank you!  I'm already quite well again.
