 My guess would be it is because the second argument to SimpleResMgr is a 
const reference for the const char* variant and a non-const reference for the 
OUString variant, which avoids the ambiguity in all the other places where 
the value passed is const.

 BTW, the two ctor variants even do different things, despite looking 
semantically equivalent at a first look, so this looks like misdesigned API 
to me.
