Indeed such a M-% binding is what I've used for the last two years and I've
been pretty happy with it.  But I also find M-C-% to be too hard to type, so
I've rebound it to C-u M-%.

The other difference with the current code is that my isearch-query-replace
function does not exit isearch, so after the query-replace is done you're
back in isearch mode.  But this part of the behavior was a bad idea:
it doesn't hurt but it's useless.
