Ah, that explains the above, about redirecting DBG_ASSERT output, which 
is no longer available in LO since the introduction of the sal/log.hxx 

And don't get me wrong---your input is welcome.  I should have phrased

The usual thing, reducing maintenance cost by removing unused (if it 
turns out to be) code.  (I stumbled across it when pondering how best to 
fix <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76179> "[Embedded 
Firebird] - no DbgTestSolarMutex function set warning.")
