Coming from someone who often resists adding yet another user option, this is a
bit surprising to me.  IMHO, this is a case where your more usual stance wrt new
options (YAGNI) would be appropriate.

It is trivial for a user to bind C-g to `isearch-cancel'.
(And that command already has another simple binding.)

I would, however, support documenting this in the manual, where we discuss the
out-of-the-box behavior of C-g.  Just mention that ESC ESC ESC (command
`isearch-cancel') always cancels isearch (and you can bind it to another key if
you want).
