I've been using a local patch which makes C-s C-s repeat the last search
(regexp or not) and I find it very useful.  The problem is that I find
M-C-s M-C-s significantly more difficult to hit than C-s C-s, so when
I need to repeat a search many times, C-s C-s is much better.
Another reason is that I rarely use M-C-s but instead I do
`C-s ..blabla.. M-r ..blibli' because I often notice "too late" that I want
a regexp search rather than a plain search, so almost all my regexp
searches are started with C-s rather than with M-C-s or C-u C-s.
