Yeah, it can go in the mode-line lighter. I just meant that, given how
temporary isearch is, the "status indicators" can afford to be a lot
more clear and verbose than a single character. These characters make
sense if you know what they mean, but mean nothing to a newcomer.

Hm. I think so. I don't know whether multiline echo-area is supported
everywhere, but if it is I would really like to see that. The only
thing to keep in mind is that it has to be fixed. That is, I don't
want a second line poping up and down while I search or toggle stuff,
it has to be permanent so as to not be distracting.
