Good points. From an interface perspective, I like the idea of getting
rid of the non-advanced find "replace". I agree the implementation in
advanced find is a big step backward for simple find/replace, but I
think this could be fixed. From what I understand, it would be possible
to detect whether a "find/replace" is simple or if it uses advanced
features. For the simple case, the current (non-advanced) implementation
could be used. In any case, I don't think anyone would support this
idea, and even if so I don't have time to help work on it, so let's
forget about it.

I just tested current master. There is a strange issue with one of the
buttons. Screenshot attached.

Thanks for the work on this, Jürgen. It is a great improvement!
