;;; Comments:
;; Just like occur, except that changes in the *All* buffer is
;; propagated to the original buffer.
;; I also added highlighting of the matches.
;; You can no longer use mouse-2 to find a match in the original file,
;; since the default definition of mouse to is useful.
;; However, `C-c C-c' still works.
;; Line numbers are not listed in the *All* buffer.
;; Ok, it is _not_ just like occur.
;; Some limitations:
;; - Undo in the *All* buffer is an ordinary change in the original.
;; - Changes to the original buffer is not reflected in the *All* buffer.
;; - A single change in the *All* buffer must be limited to a single match.
;; Requires GNU Emacs 19.23 or later.
