If a \centering occurs at top-level in a latex document,
then *everything* after it will be centered: it's a declaration that
remains in force for the current group (which is the rest of the
document if it occurs at top-level).

\begin{center}...\end{center} is essentially {\centering ...} except
that it also starts a new paragraph.

It's not clear to me at least, that wholesale replacement is the correct
thing to do: it needs to be looked at on a case-by-case basis I think.
