If you have got that string from a file like object, instead of
loading the entire string in memory you could iterate through the file
object to load one line at time. This will help provided the string is
has line-separators.

Otherwise you could store in a mock StringIO file like object and
iterate, if the string is heavy to handle in memory.

Here is one recipe to do multiple string replacement in python in a
single shot.
