 This patch redirects 404s to search using what would be the "plugin slug"
 as the search term.

 I also included a fix for the https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/ which
 was redirecting to the "search" plugin (or a 404 when logged out) rather
 than running a search because the search term was empty.

 Some examples I used for testing:
 - https://wordpress.org/plugins/the-social/ (closed, 404)
 - https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-media/ (not yet visible to public,
 - https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-media-data/ (404)
 - https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/
 - https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/ (this one is tricky. with this
 patch it redirects to searching for "search" which seems like the right
 behavior for any existing links out in the world)
