Thanks for the suggestions! I have installed both.

Multiple cursors is a bit too general/fiddly for this problem I think,
although the concept seems useful for solving problems that otherwise
call for a keyboard macro and apply-macro-to-region-lines.

As for visual-regexp, after setting vr/default-replace-preview to t,
vr/query-replace seems to do what I'm suggesting. Neat. Would it make
sense to integrate behavior like this into stock Emacs?
