Great, thanks. 

Looking at this createFromAscii_4.patch reminds me of something else.
Nothing to do with you, the code was this way already, but 

rtl::OUString foo = rtl::OUString(RTL_CONSTASCII_USTRINGPARAM("apple"));
is rather unnecessarily verbose 
rtl::OUString foo(RTL_CONSTASCII_USTRINGPARAM("apple"));
is far easier on the eye and is equivalent.

Looking at createFromAscii_2.patch I see it affects a ternary operator
(i.e. ?:) so..

#define RTL_CONSTASCII_USTRINGPARAM( constAsciiStr ) constAsciiStr,
((sal_Int32)(sizeof(constAsciiStr)-1)), RTL_TEXTENCODING_ASCII_US

old: OUString sFoo(OUString::createFromAscii(bBool ? "true" : "false));

new: OUString sFoo(RTL_CONSTASCII_USTRINGPARAM(bBool ? "true" :

would be expanded as...

OUString sFoo(bBool ? "true" : "false, ((sal_Int32)(sizeof(bBool ?
"true" : "false)-1));

I think this is fine, but I'm a little bit wary of making that change
while sleep-deprived given the occasional gotchas messing with ternary
operators can have, e.g.
so everything pushed except that I've omitted createFromAscii_2.patch
for now.
