.NET automatically interns all strings literals inside the assembly when
the assembly is loaded. The blog notes that:
This is expensive and -- in retrospect -- may have been a
mistake. In the future we might consider allowing individual
assemblies to opt-in or opt-out.
For compatibility, we'll probably want to do the same, which is what
you're doing. So this is the path of least resistance. :-)
