As mentioned above (and can be seen here), toggleClass's syntax supports easily switching classes (or replacing as you refer to it) already. Unless there are use-cases which toggleClass would not be appropriate for, we'll be closing this feature/enhancement request as the behavior is already supported.

Also, jQueryUI's toggleClass adds animation support incase you're itching to make that feature request.
