By the way, do you actually use emacsclient/server yourself?  It seems
that people who actually do use emacsclient (well, and also everyone
else who has weighed in on this matter) feel it is more intuitive for
an emacsclient call to interrupt isearch, rather than the behavior you
are proposing.  In that sense, your "less harsh" behavior---whatever
other benefits it might have---is actually more harsh, because it
doesn't do what people expect.
