I would say that convert is a different matter altogether. If you
really need a conversion to MeijerG, you can try

In[1]:= Integrate`Definite;
  Integrate`ImproperDump`Mellin[Log[x] BesselJ[0, x]/Sin[x^2], x]

Out[2]= Csc[x^2] Log[x] Integrate`ImproperDump`MeijerGfunction[{}, {},
{0}, {0}, x^2/4]

This is the output from version 6, and it's essentially the same as
what is given by the Mysterious Alternate Program (Largely Esteemed).
