paste yanked text on command buffer

Sometimes you need to paste yanked text while performing command. For example subtituting yanked text with some words.

yanked text are stored in the 0 and " register.

in the command mode you can paste this with ctrl-R [registe] example in our cases this would be ctrl-R 0

so full command would be for example :%s/[press ctrl-R then 0]/replacement/gc
