Had you simply _added_ this feature and not usurped the existing

I have no objection to the _addition_ of another way to search
and replace in Dired.

That's very generous of you.

I don't understand the hostility/sarcasm.

It is sarcasm. Designed to point out that your paragraph above is an empty statement.

Of course if a change has no bearing on any user's workflow except on those who choose to opt in, there is literally nothing for you to complain about. But there are fewer things to be happy about as well.

It's a minor complaint: Keep the new feature, but please
don't tread on existing keys and their features.  Not
without a good reason, at least.  Is that too much to ask?

It is.

And if the complaint is minor, maybe spend less time arguing about it next time?
