It's the ESC prefix. You can use it if you remove ESC from the list of
characters that terminate an incremental search. The problem is that most
of the key sequences that begin with ESC (e.g., arrow keys) are intended to
terminate the isearch and use the ESC as the first character of a key
sequence. You have to look farther ahead in the input stream than
incremental search presently does to differentiate between an ESC-prefixed
key sequence you want to use for searching and one you want to terminate
the search and use as a command.
