I tried this and it doesn't quite work. The magic control chars in
incremental search mode (which is the point of this, isn't it, to get
your favorite search when you type ctrl-S) are defined to be *char*.
Thus, when I type ctrl-S, ctrl-S it doesn't re-search. If anyone
knows of a way to fix the incremental search guys to take
sequences or something instead of "just chars", please let me know.
(also, I discovered, not even 'meta' works: I tried making the research
char be meta-S just to see what happens. Well, the obvious (after you
think about it for a while): I have no way to type "meta-S". I have
a *command* that'll make-believe it is meta-S (escape followed by
S), but that is NOT the same thing as a real meta-S, and so doesn't work.
