	Great ! :-) incidentally, I had one minor point around the ASCII vs.
UTF-8 side; the rtl_string2UString (cf. sal/rtl/source/string.cxx) does
a typically slower UTF-8 length counting loop; I suggest that we could
do better performance wise (and we do create a biggish scad of these
strings) by sticking with ascii, and doing a single, simple copy/expand
of the string. Perhaps in a new rtl_uString_newFromAsciiL method.

	There were some pretty -huge- changes in our build tree adding all of
these RTL_CONSTASCII_USTRINGPARAM macros ~everywhere in the recent past,
so from a 'git blame' perspective, I'd be reasonably ok with a
substantial global cleanup / replace effort here myself; I think we
already lost the history there.
