So I see.  I just read through that thread and see that:

1)  it doesn't touch upon the mismatch between highlighting and
queries in a query-replace-regexp; it's only talking about searching,
not replacing, and

2)  the thread died out without any decision having been made.

I think that both string searches and regular expression searches
should have "space-means-space" functionality by default, with there
being 2 separate customisable settings to toggle
space-means-space-in-string-search and
space-means-space-in-regexp-search.  There's no need to a special
keystroke to toggle these 'on the fly' - just have the customisable.
