I'd say, if you must, then change as you go. If you do it all in a

Not only that. but it you leave each function alone until you work on
it, then you'll have at least some indication of where/when an error has
Many time when I'm using a piece of code that isn't formatted as I like,
I first get it to work as I want changing only the functions that I must
change. After everything is working, I then step through the code,
reformat, and change in small steps.
whereas I'd say it shouldn't be a problem to do automatically (but will
be); just only use a tokenizer and not any form of regex or str_replace
etc, that way you can be sure you are ONLY changing classes, methods,
functions, function calls, variables etc
you still may have some problems with any call_user_func or string
