i have done this for the Gdip library with the help of others:
https://github.com/mmikeww/AHKv2-Gdip

however, v2 was explicitly created to BREAK COMPATIBILITY, which means that it will be infeasible to accomplish this for some code. eventually you will just be converting everything back down to DllCalls and directly going through the winapi, which defeats the purpose of using AHK altogether.

so i voted neutral

alternatively you could help building v1->v2 converter:
