Actually I expressed this opinion in context of my own situation that
is similar to this feature request - some time ago I wrote a patch
for isearch.el that implements a new feature of displaying numeric hints
on each visible lazy-isearch match.  But then my doubt was that it will
impact the size of isearch.el that is already one of the biggest files
in the Emacs repository.  Then I rewrote the patch using the seq library
that helped to squeeze the patch down to a couple dozen of lines,
but still I doubt the usefulness of my implemented feature.
This is why I decided to release it as a separate package.
So this is what I suggest to do with features that are not in high demand,
or are stil experimental, or are too big to fit into the existing packages.
