Issue with search for tags with parenthesis ( )

ex. if I search for tag:abc(abc)test, it will automatically insert spaces in between and changing the query to tag:abc (abc) test unless I place " " around the term

this should not be the default behavior if ( ) are allowed to be in the tag names

Parentheses are also allowed in all kinds of names (decks, fields, etc). Quoting is required because parentheses have special meaning in browser search. My uneducated guess is that removing this requirement will make the search parsing code more complicated and this may not be worthwhile.

I would also prefer brackets to only start a new group after whitespace or at the start of the expression, but this would break backwards compatibility, so we’re kind of stuck with the current behaviour.
