a search command is relatively simple to recognize.

vile doesn't honor patterns in a range, e.g.,
so that part's still relatively simple.

The breakage is due to the change in setup_command, which doesn't
allow for anything with arguments.  Deciding how to quote arguments
would be hard if we're talking about something like the map command
(which could have escaped whitespace).  So a special case to allow
for search commands might be sufficient.
