Keep the default is easy (although I thought that we can turn off expensive
pickaxe because it was undocumented and I suppose not many people used
that). Should I send corrected patch (i.e. making pickaxe search a feature,
but default on and perhaps overridable), or should I send correcting patch
(i.e. make pickaxe search turned on by default patch)?

Documenting gitweb search operators (author:, committer:, pickaxe:) is not:
where to put the documentation?
