It is best to do it as a single patch (doing it in two steps would 
produce problems for git bisect, for example).

The patch looks good now (only nit to pick is to consider moving from an 
in--out parameter to an in-only parameter and rtl::OUString return type; 
out parameters, esp. if they "hide" behind a reference type, can be 
confusing -- think about somebody trying to grok where a given variable 
aStr can change its value, and overlooking something innocuous-looking like



   aStr = mpFontEntry->mpConversion->RecodeString(aStr);

would be so much clearer).
