That makes sense.  It has the disadvantage as compared to my more
recent proposal \` that it has no running mate like ' to complete the
expression in case that we want to write something like
where otherwise replace-count} would become a single symbol.

Or should we perhaps just discard a single optional _space_ after the
expression?  That would mean also

\,(1+ replace-count) xxx
                    ^ this space would get removed.
