Actually with the "isearch + C-y" method, you _don't_ -- the
highlight-other-matches function of isearch simply highlights everything
visible that matches the string you're searching for.  (and then stops
when you C-y past the point where the regions don't match anymore)

Americans are broad-minded people.  They'll accept the fact that a person can
be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater, and even a newspaperman, but if a
man doesn't drive, there is something wrong with him.  -- Art Buchwald
