FS#174 - Modifier: Find Replace

Add a Find Replace Modifier that functions much like the Find Replace Method, but instead modifies path and file components.

Not sure why the existing Find Replace (Method) plugin got changed from a Modifier to a Method. Doesn’t seem to make much sense, in all honesty.

The Find Replace Method is in fact misnamed. While it does find a string, it doesn't actually replace it but instead inserts a string into the path and/or filename component of the file it found the string within. It'll be renamed for 4.09.

I just don't know anymore...

Doing this Modifier plugin was so incredibly confusing for various reasons that it took me practically all day.

Should be done within the next day, though.
