Hi Bram,
  I'm forwarding to you a whishlist request from a debian vim user. It
boils down to allowing <space> characters appearing in a regexp pattern
to behave as they were "\_s" (i.e. space or newline). This would help a
lot searches in paragraphs formatted with gq (in my experience for
example this would ease a lot searches in TeX documents).

Could you please consider this feature request for Vim 7 (or perhaps you
already implemented something similar there ...)?

Full whislist request follows

Thanks in advance,
