While this isn't a complete solution maybe it will make things a bit
quicker. If you are using the OgreKit Find/Replace (which has some minor
bugs but mostly works) you can use regular expressions in your find and
replace. Not only that, but it remembers recently used find and replace
texts; there are drop down menus for the find and replace fields. At least
you don't have to retype complicated find and replace text all the time but
you do have to choose them separately.

Good Luck,
