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.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
