I use org goto to jump quckly to headings, but the other day
I forgot the name of the heading, but I remembered its contents.
I thought it could be useful if I could navigate org files by content
too, so I quickly created this package as a sunday afternoon fun.

It is a wrapper around the multi-occur interface, so you can
simply type your search pattern and the occur results from your org
buffers are updated dynamically as you type.

Here it is:

;;; org-occur-goto.el -- search open org buffers with an occur interface

;;; Usage: M-x oog, then start typing
;;; select from the occur matches with up/down/pgup/pgdown and press enter
;;; the search string must be at least 3 characters long (by default)
