BTW, I first thought writing the basic features for efficient matching
would be complicated, and the user interface would be easy going.  It
turned out the opposite was true: Implementing the matching routines was
fun, but maintaining the user interface is hard work.  Mainly because
already the specification of the interface is really, much more than I
had expected.  I guess it's similar for isearch.
