I find the concept of 'token' to limiting. The other day I replaced an
ill-named method 'get' to 'getType only to find out that I defined the
method ones and in the same file I used another method named 'get' as well.
So I figured the token was to short and I tried "String get" and
"get(String" so I would only have the definition.
Unfortunately the ( and the space both rendered my token illegal so I was
forced to record the change as a hunk.
In the end I rarely use the replace patch since its so specific. It would
be a whole lot better if I could mark a section of a file where I wanted to
do the replace (one method for example).
