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.
