So, what is our general plan here? Is the below accurate?
1 Add new code to freedesktop.org/libreoffice/cppunit.
2 Make a cppunit-1.13.0 release from there (last release from its old
sourceforge home is 1.12.1).
3 Make LO pull external cppunit-1.13.0 tgz from
freedesktop.org/libreoffice/cppunit (instead of cppunit-1.12.1 tgz

packagers) that they need to upgrade their system's cppunit from the old
sourceforge to the new freedesktop or use --without-system-cppunit.
3.3 Convince distro packagers to switch from the old sourceforge to the
