By default, Cream uses &nomagic for find/replace dialogs since we
don't have an option to add a checkbox there to turn it on/off. Better
this than a novice user using a few errant periods, ampersands, or
slashes and destroying their file without realizing it.
To use Vim's regular expressions, the easy way is to just use Vim's
substitution command at the command line (Ctrl+L, :). Of course, then
all of Vim's default patterns apply there (see :help :s).
A third way is to use the dialogs, but precede the search term with
"\m" to force &magic on.
