Generally good - to be fair the 'repl' and 'with' are in the original Lang code rather than
just this patch. 

[I've a sneaky feeling that's all my fault going back a long way, the LPC command to do a
replacement on one MUD was:   repl foo with bar]

      was (Author: bayard):
    All seems good; I'll make that change next.
