@Alex briefly:
 - The 's' query var is used in a various places (eg admin search) so not a
trivial rewrite.
 - I prefer to let WordPress to work out what should happen (just like for
any other rewrite).
 - (I don't use apache ;p).

Thanks. Mark uses template_redirect and has some other useful sanity checks
in there. It's the 3rd plugin I've found today that either does something I
was doing, or is doing something I want to. 'Mazing.

Still leaves me wondering why it isn't core behaviour. There are no
caveat's to Mark's code, and I only learnt about /search/ when I tried to
add it myself and found it already there. The lack of redirect made me
think that /search/ wasn't there. But it is.

Oh well, enough pondering. Thanks for help :)
