It is not a frequently used command.  But when there is a need to
replace a regexp with a variable string, it becomes a real time saver.
I have seen people unaware of this command trying to solve a problem
in a too complicated way.  This is one of the commands Emacs users
need to know about to not reinvent the wheel.
