I meant a patch from bug#12078 and implementing the suggestion from bug#12988
that will allow Isearch to always start with the default short prompt ‘I-search’
and any changes from the default state will add more indicators to the prompt.
For example, if the default search is case-insensitive, then ‘C-s’ will display
“I-search”, and ‘M-s c’ will turn the prompt into “Case-sensitive I-search”.

Your suggestion of displaying flashing initially also makes sense.
This flashing could be similar to how e.g. “[case sensitive]” is flashed
momentarily on toggling with ‘M-s c’, but also on starting Isearch.

Whether to display verbose indicators (like currently are used, e.g.
“Regexp I-search”) or 1-letter cryptic ones (e.g. “I-search(r/c/')”
like in C-mode with its indicators such as “C/lahw”) is a matter of taste
and could be customizable.
