Question Polish books extension: Search & Replace

Polish books contains a number of actions, which actions can also be found in Conversions, and are selectable (on/off) to perform some minimum touching-up on a book.

One of the function I am missing (and thus would like to have ) is the Search & Replace option exactly as is present in "Preferences - Conversion - Common Options". By including it in "Polish books" you can conveniently touch-up some limited text in selected books at once. For instance, I always forget to rename <title></title> and to use then a "conversion" is overkill, while opening files one by one to edit them is an annoyance.

Is this some bright idea, or am I thinking nonsense?

Polish is designed to work with simple binary on/off options. Options that require elaborate config like S&R are not appropriate for it. But there is nothing stopping someone making a plugin to do S&R on ebook contents in bulk, using the same infrastructure as polish uses.

How about the filterstyle information do you think that would be suitable option for this plugin.

No, again one has to specify which rules need to be filtered.
