Well, I disagree with Richard's assessment here.  In all other cases,
typing something "partially" gives us a good C-h behavior, like when
C-x v C-h
or something.  I don't think it is too hard to type <RET> to exit an
isearch if you really want the top-level help.

And we don't have a way to get at isearch-mode-help otherwise: it is
not in our isearch-mode-map.

I think this is a mistake.  If the function were of no use, we would
not need it.
