    Well, I disagree with Richard's assessment here.  In all other cases,
    typing something "partially" gives us a good C-h behavior, like when
    typing 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.

Agree. I turn it on. Those who need the search help most won't know about
it, without this being on.
