FWIW it is exactly that type of "I want your patch to do more than you do"
type of comments that makes it impossible for myself to contribute patches
anymore. It just does not fit inside my Git time budget anymore.
Besides, it breaks exactly the intended usage. My intent is not just to
see the matching lines in the pager, but to be able to adjust the search
pattern further if needed. Your suggestion completely breaks that usage.
