Thanks for sending this, and sorry it took me so long to deal with it.
I have applied this as pkg_rolling-replace 0.23.

Thanks also to Ian for the patch to error out when no package is
selected for replacing (that's 0.22).

Please let me know if there are any regressions from these changes, or
if there are other changes that should be applied that I've overlooked.
