That was my fault. Of course, loading the patched isearch.el didn't

Usability-wise, C-s foo C-<number> C-s makes only sense if that
keystroke is shorter to type than C-s multiple times. So maybe the
numbering should start with some offset, say, with the 5th next match?
And the typing of C-s after the number is a bit inconvenient, so maybe,
C-7 could jump directly to the match hinted with 7, and only for
two-digit matches C-s was needed, i.e., C-u 1 2 C-s to jump to the 12th
I just played play with it too and I really like it. Here my notes:
- I do agree with Tassilo, C-7 should directly jump to match hinted 7.
- When more than lazy-highlight-max-at-a-time are visible in the window,
the prefix number is restarted from 1 on the next match hinted. It's confusing
and I think it should not appear on these items.
- A defcustom variable should be added to enable/disable the match hinted prefix
Anyway, it's an very interesting improvement.
