[O] Massive Org search

Hi, Org people.

I'm a rather recent Org mode user.  Consolidating my previous data into
Org mode gave 385 files using 5,5 Mb.  I quickly found out that this is
too much for Org mode, if I want to be able to search it all using Org
mode means.  So, I segregated a handful of agenda files, and developed a
small tool for when I need a massive org search (which is often).  Let
me share it, in case useful to others.  For the code, see:


The idea is simple: just use a recursive grep and normal compile-type
buffer and commands, yet add a bit of code to reveal hidden text which
is being located by the compile commands.  Also manage so that a mere
C-s on the located buffer immediately show all occurrences.
