Yes, I agree.

Everything else looks good, though I did not scan every source file looking for 
potential missed conversions - I only looked for missed ones if it was near the 
code that had differences (such as SubjectCodeSource).

Also, I would be curious to know if there has been any discussion in Project 
Coin regarding my other comment as to whether the diamond operator improves code 
readability if the variable is declared elsewhere.
