Description:
------------
It'd be great to have a version of str_replace()  that can be configured to work 
on a specified number of replacements.

I propose that the function 

mixed strn_replace ( mixed $search , mixed $replace , mixed $subject, int 
$repetitions, [, int &$count ] )

Be created, which would do the same thing as str_replace() but only as many 
times as $repetitions was set to.

See further discussion of the ways this problem is currently solved.

the-first-match

I am up for adding this code in as a patch, but it'd be nice to have some 
feedback if this is desired.
