**) The second patch add your suggestion on showing highlighted the
    current line.  When there are matches after the current line, the
    point in *Occur* is set right after such line.

I don't care about the highlighting, but I like very much the idea of locating point in *Occur* at the place that corresponds to point in the source buffer. It provides for free most of the benefit of `occur-above' and `occur-below' (by whatever names) by partitioning the results in an intuitive fashion.

(It's also the same idea as in my vc-diff patch (which I still need to finish): to show a map of interesting things in the buffer centered on point.)
