Search and Replace Optimization

The Search and Replace function needs to be optimized. If my Search has a large number of results to be replaced, ST2 just freezes up on me, whereas Notepad++ gets the job done in a couple seconds.

Same issue here. Try to search and replace with a large number of replaces (186,738 in my file) and ST2 will use 100% CPU and become unresponsive. Other text editors including Windows Notepad handle this operation just fine.
