Visit src/ChangeLog, then type 'C-s' and be amazed by the "Multi "
prefix to the usual "I-search:" prompt.

Yes, this is evidently there since Emacs 23.1.  Yes, it probably tells
you how much I search ChangeLog files, or look at the prompt when I
do.  But all of this aside, I have a couple of questions:

 . Why is it a good idea to show this Multi thing at the very
   beginning of the search, when there's no evidence whatsoever that
   the search is in danger of crossing into the next file in the
   series?  It's confusing to see this, because _I_ didn't ask for
   multi-file or multibuffer isearch.  It took me by surprise and
   forced me to go looking for the reason (tried in other versions of
   Emacs and in other buffers, before it dawned on me that it is
   something specific to add-log mode).  You want to be nice to me?
   fine: then show this to me when I type C-s that will cross into the
   next file, but not before that.  _Then_ I might appreciate the
   service.  But when I type my first C-s, please give me just what I
   asked for.

 . This should at least be documented in the manual.  When I saw this
   prompt, I tried to figure out what it meant (did someone really
   think that "Multi" explains it all?), but it seems not to be
   mentioned anywhere in the docs.  Even the NEWS entry for Emacs
   23.1, which does say that isearch is automatically multi-file in
   ChangeLog files, doesn't mention this prompt.  I needed to wade
   through isearch.el to find what it meant, only to find out that the
   facility used to trigger it -- multi-search-next-buffer-function --
   is not documented in the Elisp manual, either, which sounds weird
   if we consider such features useful in other modes.  Is this a
   secret of some sorts?
