This would be actually great, it would match the behavior of standalone
info (which, IMO, is much better).
Is there any reason not to check this code in?
I like being able to confine an isearch to the current node. Currently, I
can use `s' for global search and `C-s' (or `C-M-s') for local (node)
So, to me, it would be desirable to have some indication that the end of the
current node was reached without finding another occurrence of the string -
e.g. "Failing isearch in node Foo: bar". Except for being able to overwrap
isearch in the node (no great loss), this would give the advantages of both
approaches (local and global search). Without such a local-failure
indication, you would have to (perhaps unwittingly) continue the search to
another node, and then use `l' to get back where you were.
IOW, why not have two levels of isearch "failure": 1) no more in the current
node, 2) no more in the current Info "manual"?
