And the += operator irritates me.

Either way though, its a nonsense to have 4 (well three now, ByteString
is gone) string classes. And given that the rtl::O[U]String classes are
the ones that are available for external api users its only fair that we
use *that* one and not run back to the "classic" non-exported UniString
when rtl::OUString is too hard to use for something
