It sounds like Per's `all.el' should be about what you want.

Maybe this will also help; dunno:  You can use `icicle-occur' (bound to `C-'' by
default) on any number of buffers.  You can use it to search and replace text,
where the replacement happens on demand, on the fly.  Unlike
`query-replace(-regexp)', you can skip around and just hit a key when you want
to make a change - you are not queried about the hits.

*Completions* shows you essentially what `occur' and `all' show you, but without
any context lines.  And the hits are highlighted in the original buffer (which
shows the complete context).  Unlike `occur' and `all', the hits change
dynamically as you type text into the minibuffer.  IOW, it's like an instant,
incrementally updated `occur'/`all'.
