That makes sense. If someone goes to the trouble to manually configure what
namespace they're searching in, then types in "MediaWiki:Foo" as their search
query, they're not expecting search to override their manually selected
namespaces. In most other cases where they've not chosen their namespaces
manually, it makes sense for this override to take place.
