Well, one fairly common pattern is sprinkled around of...

namespace css = com::sun::star;
namespace cssu = com::sun::star::uno;

Sticking e.g. an additional namespace alias of

namespace libreoffice = com::sun::star;, or something of that nature, in
some header probably isn't the worst idea in the world. Though it does
generate a lot of churn to go around changing anything, and the other
language bindings, e.g. java and so on, wouldn't be affected, which i
guess has the potential for some extra confusion.
