I suggested an edit to a question after it was suggested in another comment when I added some explanatory discussion.
However, the edit got rejected on the grounds of changing the intent, although I only added braces to the code that make the syntax more clear and added one sentence about the semantics (search-replace-replacelength). Does that already "change the intent"? I'd rather not create a new answer basically quoting one sentence from the documentation, especially if it's an old and accepted answer and thus won't get much exposure so people would first see the accepted answer and still need to scroll through the others to find the explanation.
To me, the intent or idea of the answer is completely untouched, it helped me with my problem, I only added some background information about TeX that allows removing " unnecessary " brackets.
