I agree that C-f alone should exit isearch.

I'm carefully trying to preserve the current default behavior.
That's why grabbing from the buffer should be started only with `M-s C-f'.
However, for subsequent keys after `M-s C-f' maybe should be an option
to choose between `M-s C-f M-s C-f M-s C-f' or a shorter sequence
`M-s C-f C-f C-f'.
