OK.  (But we already have multiple text-pulling
keys for Isearch.)

I'm not against it.

But I don't think it's a super idea to say
that to users, i.e., to give them the idea
that this is closely related to `zap-to-char'.
There are some similarities, but it's not that

It's OK for its mnemonic utility, but I'm not
sure it's good to explicitly mention `zap-to-char'.
Users of `zap-to-char' will anyway get the
association (without our pointing it out), and
there's no harm in that.
