Great suggestion, but you may want to post to the forums before adding the program to the database, as it's more likely to get the votes necessary to go live.

I've updated the program entry to add a bit more on this program. I'll try to test it out in the coming weeks and vote.

+1, This is the only utility I have seen where you can replace multiple lines.
