Set your output to Insert as snippet. This will actually replace  
whatever the input is, but will interpret the output as a snippet.  
Then you do the processing of the line, and you snippet-escape the  
result, and add $0 at the location where you want the caret to end  
up. The library escape.rb will be of help to you, it contains an  
"e_sn" command that escapes the text for use in a snippet.
