I installed this code. Now C-s in Info works like in standalone info.
If there are good reasons to add a "Failing isearch in node Foo: bar"
message before trying other nodes, as Drew suggested, this could be
added as a separate option value of the Info-isearch-search variable.
But I think such delay in one C-s key press is inconvenient when the
user intention is to search all nodes.
When isearch goes to the next node with the user intention to search
only in the current node then it is easy to get back by typing DEL
without leaving isearch mode.
