Script-fu for arbitrary selectable text across applications. Possibilites?

Script-fu for arbitary text: Across applications (but especially in text editors) I want to be able to (a) right click on a bit of selected text (b) have the usual contextual menu pop up upon doing so, but with options to (c) send said text to an arbitrary script (perl, python, whatever) and (d) potentially have the selected text replaced by script results, if the context is right. What are my best options for both the Mac and Windows? [more inside]

Batch-correct files?

sed: How do I use it to do a general search/replace on a bunch of files? The docs seem to believe all I have to do is feed it s/regexp/replacetext/g and a list of files and I'm off to the races, but rather than getting the files changed... [exciting conclusion inside] [more inside]
