  Thank you for adding this!

  Now that you have the count, would it be posible to add a
  command to specify which occurane of a match to go to and/or

  Lets say there are 100 matches.  I search through them and wind
  up at 42/100.  I stop seaching and do something else.  I decide
  I want to go back to my previous search.  It would be very handy
  to have a command to do "goto match 42" or "goto match 67" or
  "goto match last-match" .e.g. go directly to 100/100 (since 100
  is the last found numbered match reported by isearch) and I would
  then see the 100th match highlighted and the indicator displaying

  Let me know if this should be a separate enhancement request.
