Description

We would like that the search function handles "_" as a searchable character, essentially to search for magic words. At [[Wikipedia:Requests for comment/User page indexing]], we're thinking on noindexing userspace or part of it, and allowing exemptions with the INDEX magic word; and would like to be able to monitor exempted pages by searching for the magic word. There are many other cases where being able to search for expressions with "_" would be useful.
