I would prefer that, yes.  `M-w' to copy to the
kill-ring (as usual).

Do you need an actual patch to include the command
I sent, or can you please just include it (renaming

Sorry, I don't know what you mean, there.  `M-r' is
(and has long been) `isearch-toggle-regexp'.

(Not sure what you mean by that, either.)
