    The only instances where it's more convenient than simply a shortcut to "remove block with pickaxe, place new block manually" is when you have stuff above the block you remove (like furniture, sand/silt/slush, liquids, etc.). Also when swapping containers.

    By and large it doesn't really affect gameplay, just makes updating your base a little less tedious. It's not going to let you cheat.

    Block swap depends on your highest pickaxe power of the pickaxe(s) in your inventory. You won't be able to block swap ebonstone, crimstone, Dungeon Bricks and so on unless you have a pickaxe that can mine them normally.

    Just let me replace the the regular wooden platforms my Demon Altar spawned on with Living Wood platforms - that world was generated before 1.2.4 and the Demon Altar spawned in one of my Living Trees.

    Honestly replacing blocks under a Demon Altar or equivalent would be nice.

    Brings to mind a good question: will blockswap work with wands (bone, living wood, living leaf, living mahogany, etc.), or only with blocks that can be placed directly?

    I would say almost definitely yes, since they are used to place blocks.
