This is what I expected.

Thanks for tracking down the threads, Glenn.

It would seem the binding for hitting C-y in Isearch to yank the rest
of the line existed ever since Daniel LaLiberte wrote Isearch 20 years
ago.  I guess its time has come.  This means hitting C-k C-/ C-s C-y
rather than C-s C-y.  I can relinquish that C-y in Isearch wasn't
consistent with global C-y in Emacs, but if word and character yanking
are on C-w and C-M-y, respectively, it seems like line-yanking should
be on a better binding than M-s C-e.

Thanks again,

In general, we reserve the right to have a poor

remember!  Poor computer.  -- Guy Lewis Steele Jr.
