With the default setting, when you do C-s SOMETHING RET, a command
     (isearch-resume "SOMETHING" nil nil t "SOMETHING" (quote t))
is added to the command history.

IMO, this is very annoying.

C-s C-s already resumes the last isearch, and
C-s M-p M-p resumes earlier isearches.

So there's no reason to clutter C-x ESC ESC with this.

Setting isearch-resume-enabled to nil avoid cluttering the command
history with those (superfluous) isearch-resume commands.

I would recommend using isearch-resume-enabled = nil the default.
