BTW, there is another useful search feature missing in Isearch.

In Chromium, the Search prompt displays the current search position
and the total number of matches.  It would be useful to implement this
in Isearch.  It helps to orient oneself while searching - to see
how many matches are remaining to visit with C-s, etc.

This information could be displayed in the mode-line in the usual format
that can be seen in some Emacs packages, e.g. "7/24".

The main problem is in the performance impact to count the total
number of matches.  Perhaps to not affect the responsiveness
these computations should be placed in `isearch-lazy-highlight'.
