Oh, it is used intensively, at least by me.  I regularly search alternatingly
for two, three, four strings -- being able to just hit <Up><Up> <Up> is then
a great help.  Apparently people seldom search first for some string and then
for a shorter version and then want to search for the longer one again.

(And since I know that tabbing works at the search prompt, I use that
too sometimes.)
