I would prefer to keep the change explicit.  (At least theoretically, 
there might be cases where one does not want to do the conversion; e.g., 
cf. the com.sun.star.uri.UriSchemeParser_* services.)

Note that converting a service from old-style to new-style does not 
/require/ call sites to be adapted.  It merely /allows/ to do so.
