   Given that we rebind C-y to yank text in isearch
   (`isearch-yank-kill'), can you find a good keybinding for
   `isearch-yank-line' that is currently on `C-y'?  (It would be good
   to reserve `M-y' for a new command `isearch-yank-pop' by analogy
   with `M-y' `yank-pop').

What about C-M-y?

It would be nice if C-u C-y and C-u N C-y behaved the same as yank
