[ZEP] new Filter option for pasted text-strings.   [ZEP]

This ZEP proposes a new 'F7' Filter option, to be used primarily on 'pasted-in' text strings.

The existing F5 'Fuzzy' Filter option works extremely well -- I use it about 100 times a day.

Instead of complicating the F5 'Fuzzy' Filter option... a new 'F7' option would replace 'inter-word characters' with spaces, prior to generating the Filter.

( All 'double-spaces' would immediately be replaced by single-spaces -- to prevent double-asterisk Filters, that would result in "Error: Invalid filter".)

The 'inter-word characters' to be replaced with spaces, could include some or all of the following, and others:

... - ... _ ... + ... = ... ' ... : ... ; ... < ... > ... / ... \ ...

... (ignore the '...' separators)
