I don't think the behavior is inelegant (it's not great, but there's not
much we can do without major changes to Emacs).  So I think the forceful
exit from recursive minibuffers is OK (it's generic), whereas the isearch
part is a complete hack.

The better fix is "easy": implement concurrency in Emacs (at least the
cooperating form of it).
