NEW feature request: Global Find and Replace

One last feature request and I can declare Nervana state of being when using AMOS...

Add two (or one) more input textboxes: (1) "Search substring" and (2) "Replace substring".

Which will return a list of all the relevant tokens in which the string is found (highlighted???) including a column displaying the same text but with the replaced sub-string, ready for me to edit or approve and submit for commit.

What do you think?

I think it's not useful. It will be used at least by 1% of translators. Currently you can download langpack, modify it with any editor wich supports multifile replace, zip modified  langpack, upload it back.

One russian contributors member created script, that makes replacements with sed utility - it can make complex replacements, like changing 'x' quotes to <<x>>. Pity, i have no time to fully test and use it ...
