Well, the task itself on the easy hack page *seems to imply* that
removing rtl:: off of e.g. rtl::OUString is part of it.  BTW, I'm not
the author of this task just to clarify. ;-)

I personally wouldn't mind this change, since my personal preference is
to define "using rtl::OUString" at the top and just use OUString
thereafter (to save some keystrokes and horizontal space).  But at the
same time I'm not sure on whether we should remove all of rtl::Foo
across the board by way of "using rtl::Foo;" at the top of each file.
That should be a case-by-case based decision, I guess.
