Original Launchpad bug 237504: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/237504
Reported by: fdo.perez (Fernando Perez).
Idea requested by Joe Harrington:
How hard would it be (and would you be willing) to add a feature to
cpaste that lets you replace strings on package names? This would let
a user tell cpaste to replace "np" with "N", for example, so that they
could cut-and-paste a doc example into their session and not have it
break if they don't use the "np" abbreviation.

I special cased:
so that it saves the new value for pasted_block. Therefore, you can execute "edit pasted_block" in succession to polish your pasted code. This would make this feature request unnecessary (since of course you can do all the search & replace in your editor as you see fit).
(implemented in my trunk-dev)
The solution proposed above has already been merged, so this can be closed.
