I hadn't heard about this until you posted the idea. After reading more here, this does sound like something that would be really useful. It's great to double-click a variable and see highlighted all occurrences, and this would take that one step further.

Can you say a bit more about how this is useful? I read the link to the Rstudio example, but not really seeing the benefit of this over find & replace to replace all occurences.  I can't remember a time I've wanted to type in two lines at once, with the possible exception of something like drawing a "comment box" or some other ASCII art.  But I'm sure I'm just not imagining the possibilities.
