I think he meant «make the highlights stay there until next search or,
for each highlighted piece of text, until the text is changed so it
doesn't fit the search any more.» I'd really like to see the same so I
guess that's it. ;-)
Currently the highlight disappears when the search is over.

Vim has this feature, same with less etc.
The highlight doesn't need to glare when the search is over,
but I'd clearly like to see it.
