Looks good.  I've made a couple of tweaks, and have committed it to
trunk.  The C-c c-c binding was removed in favor of just C-x C-q, as
Stefan suggested.  For now, I also left out the part where C-x C-q in
Occur Edit mode saves the associated buffers, because this doesn't seem
to be properly thought out; what if the buffers have no associated
files?

Also, I added a small fix to occur-after-change-function to avoid
screwing up the Occur Edit buffer when multi-line text is inserted.
Since we can't create new Occur entries, this just ignores everything
after the inserted newline.  If you want to try and handle this properly
(i.e. by inserting a new Occur entry for each inserted line), go ahead.
