Actually I'm happy that you are pushing for the sooner release,
so now we have to concentrate on both these almost finished features.

Also in the next release I'd like to see improvements in the Isearch prompt
listed in the proposal Artur published on EmacsWiki, but it seems it's
impossible to reach consensus in a reasonable time before the next release
due to a wide spectrum of opinions, so perhaps Isearch prompt changes need
to wait for 25.2.
