   Here's an opinion from a user: I think it would be really good if C-y
   (yank) and M-y (yank-pop) were available in isearch minibuffer. They are
   intuitive: user very likely already knows how copy and paste works so
   (s)he might try those commands anyway.

   The current behavior of C-y, C-M-y, C-w and C-M-w in isearch minibuffer
   are kind of special cases of yanking. In some cases they are faster and
   more handy but general yank and yank-pop feel like the primary
   instruments that should be available.

I wasn't suggesting that we remvoe the current behaviour, only make
C-y/M-y behave as they usually do, and rebind isearch-yank-line to
something else.
