I think what you want is something similar to what Jim Cole implemented in
his multiple excerpt patch:

The possible difference is his patch shows all matches in the excerpt, but
only shows the URL once, if I recall correctly.

Well, if you're talking about phrase matching, i.e. only highlighting the
exact phrase "good man" and not the individual words, that's coming in
3.2. See

If you're not talking about phrase matching, then this is the same
problem as the first one, and therefore the same solution should work.
