Safe: at least as long as people do not want to use the other features 
of gb_CppunitTest_use_ure (like specifying UNO_TYPES and UNO_SERVICES) 
in a test that should be runnable before i18npool is built.

The right thing: probably not.  Rather, a consequence of too fat (unit) 
test dependencies hidden with a sledgehammer.  At any rate, it makes 
gb_CppunitTest_use_ure even more of a misnomer.

That said, probably a sufficiently pragmatic solution, anyway.  ;)
