Just to mention it. I did actually run across another wiki that supported
applying search-and-replace over many pages. It's not a bad idea actually.

They also allowed you to use regular expressions together with this if you 
wanted to, which might be a tad too much.... If so, I think you'd at least 
need to force the user to preview some of the changes before they are 
applied. Otherwise it'd be much to easy to accidentally erase *all* pages.
