I'd like something similar to the way isearch works (when highlighting
non-current matches) -- just highlight what's currently displayed and
give the user a chance to jump to the next instance.  [Maybe it could
even use jit-lock-functions or something to allow free movement in the
buffer while still using optimizing display]

Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it
has to be us.  -- Jerry Garcia
