Add support for a SQL REPLACE(in, search, replace) function

      Normal

      Description

      I don't know any other database that lacks this type of function (even SQLite has it):

      REPLACE(in, search)
      REPLACE(in, search, replace)

      But according to the Derby docs, this doesn't exist in Derby:

      http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.8/ref/rrefsqlj29026.html

      It would be quite simple to implement, I guess. Yet really useful for many people. Some documentation examples from other databases:
