MonoDevelop's New Search Bar

Currently LibraryView uses the bar at the bottom approach for Find, but still has the dialog for Replace

Well I, for one, do not like that kind of search Interface, It is slightly less obtrusive than a full popup box covering the text, but still covers the text, hindering your peripheral vision, and while "hunting" for a symbol in the code you use your whole visual field, Just like when hunting a rabbit.
The actual gui used in Suneido is far better because it pop ups in the botton and the text moves along, it's still all there to see.

I think the replace should be added right in the find Bar, more or less like this
