    Emacs 23 has the M-s f C-s (dired-isearch-filenames) command which does
    just that,

It was reading about M-s f C-s that led me to raise this issue.
That interface is inconvenient, and most people won't remember it exists.

That's why I'm suggesting we look fo a cleaner and simpler interface.
And we now have a good suggestion.
