[wingide-users] search/replace revisited...again

I'm a (ex)window$ user ;-)

I can see that in some cases incremental might help you indeed. However, 
when I do a search/replace I don't see the benefit because you always 
know exactly *what* you want to replace. So when i want to replace the 
name of a variable in a function, the last thing I want is that my 
position is changed while I type the name of the variable. That's just 
plain wrong.

(and where is the option to limit the replacements to the current 
selection? I could select the function to make sure it doesn't do too much)
