What do you all think about making the followin builtins for CWM :

# myregex is a search and replace thingie
:myregex a regex:search-replace.

# look for foo
:myrefex regex:search-for      "foo*".
:myrefex regex:search-for      "baz".

# repleace with bar
:myrefex regex:replace  "bar".

# store the result in :result
:myrefex regex:result          :result.

# prepare input 
:var foo:name :input.

# apply to the varible :input
:myregex regex:apply :input.

#store the first result to :result-var
:result regex:match-1 :result-val;
:result regex:match-2 :result-val2;

how does that sound ?

How about a new built in for that ?
that  will emit "<http://example.org/foobar#>"

that  will emit "foo:"
if foo: is 
@prefix foo: <http://example.org/foobar#>

Any comments?
