This way, you don't get the lazy-highlighting after C-l on the parts of
the window that weren't previously visible.  Also scroll-\(up\|down\)
can scroll the current search string at point out of the window.  This
wrenches point away from the current search string, yet still leaves
isearch-mode active.

I think that the prefix arg stuff is a good idea.  Somebody (else) is
going to want to do M-2 <next> to scroll the text up 2 lines.
