Could be useful. The main question is how to later get rid of it. Perhaps
the next isearch could do that, or let isearch toggle it (see below).
Yes the next search will clear it.

Turning it on by a particular exit key sequence is not the best way. I would
rather have that be a user option (like case-fold-search), and be able to
toggle the option while in isearch (like we can toggle case-fold-search).
Too cumbersome to me. Sometimes I want to leave the highlite there, sometimes not.
