From argument to object

This task typifies those programmers endure while coding. This C-family pseudocode needs a function argument to be repurposed as an object call. Simply search and replace? Repeat a pattern of edits?

Start file
organize(cupboard, 3, 2);
prioritize(bureau, 8, 7);
realize(bannister, 4, 4);
moralize(railing, 3,9);
End file
cupboard.organize(3, 2);
bureau.prioritize(8, 7);
bannister.realize(4, 4);
railing.moralize(3,9);
