Hi Juri,

Well, IMO, it would be TRT.  Once you see that result, if you consider
it useless, just dismiss it with C-g.

Also, think of a situation like having "caterpillars" in the top of
the search ring and then doing C-s C-s in a buffer which doesn't have
it, but has "caterpillar" (singular).  In that case, I would like
Isearch to move the point forward to the next occurrence of the second
one.  Yes, it isn't a full match, but is a _useful_one_ for me.

It would be useful, IMO.  Thanks.

PS: Currently, my knowledge of Emacs Lips is too basic to been able to
contribute anything useful.  Maybe in the future.  I have the
intention of keep learning... :)
