Replace entity with template

A lot of the time when creating a world, we add a substantial number of entities that then need to all be enhanced with the same functionality. Maybe we’ve added 100 streetlamps to the game, and due to changes in world lighting, we learn we need to add lights to the steep lamp entities.

Normal workflow would be to take one of the lamps, create a template out of it, and then add a light. Next, we could tediously go through the world one by one placing a new template, positioning it into the same space the old lamp was, then deleting the old lamp.

I’d like to propose an option on either on a single entity, or on a selection of entities, to be able to “Replace with template”. “Replace with template” would delete whatever is selected, and then place the selected template at the same position and rotation.
