That doesn't mean however that we can't try to avoid choosing the exact
keybinding you use to cancel incremental search in Emacs, from which is
the feature primarly stolen, after all :). On a side note, ESC works
somewhat differently than C-g, I'd like to see ESC working as global
"drop everything on the floor" binding, but it doesn't (for example, old
"ESC doesn't cancel dialogues" thing).

Hmm, I shall stop spamming people's boxes with my rants now :)
