It doesn't make sense to have convert-ly produce non-working code for
version 2.19.40 .  And convert-ly cannot promise to fix code that never
worked due to its combination of version statement and old syntax.

It isn't guaranteed that you can run convert-ly multiple times for the
same version range without producing invalid code.
