Oh, I was assuming this was automated with coccinelle or at least some
simple shell scripting..

Generally, for things like this, automation really is great.

In fact, I like it when people attach the scripts to the commit
message, further clarifying exactly what they did (even if the end
result then often includes manual fixups for patterns that didn't
_quite_ match, or where the automated script just generated ugly
indentation or similar).
