Replace operator is an additionnal operator, like 'c', 'd' or 'p'.
It operates on a range of text, and accepts a register as input.
Basically, it replaces the text in {motion} or {Visual} with the content of register [x], or 'clipboard' if none provided.

The deleted text is sent to black hole register by default.
You can set the default register by setting:

    let g:replace_register = '_'

When g:replace_register is set to '|', the text is exchanged between
the two register.
