Same background here, and my thoughts about that response were less
charitable than yours.

You probably know that whatever you're doing in vi (or vim) with search
and replace could be scripted using a sed pipe and very similar syntax to
your vi commands.  AFAIK, you'd have to template this yourself and write
such a script to transform your templates into bb-host includes.  I hope
someone else on the list can be more helpful than that.
