That is mouse-free, but not incremental.  Incremental search actually
shows you matches as you type and edit the search string.  There's
just no comparison in my book.

Jef Raskin's book on user interface design explains why incremental
search is so much better.  I think the quote is, "Search is either
incremental, or it is excremental."  :)
