Alternative to Test::More::use_ok

According to the *Test::More* documentation, it is recommended to run
'use_ok()' inside a 'BEGIN' block, so functions are exported at
compile-time and prototypes are properly honored.

That is, instead of writing this:

use_ok( 'Some::Module' );
use_ok( 'Other::Module' );

One should write this:

BEGIN { use_ok( 'Some::Module' ); }
BEGIN { use_ok( 'Other::Module' ); }

However, people often either forget to add 'BEGIN', or mistakenly group
'use_ok' with other tests in a single 'BEGIN' block, which can create
subtle differences in execution order.

With this module, simply change all 'use_ok' in test scripts to 'use ok',
and they will be executed at 'BEGIN' time. The explicit space after 'use'
makes it clear that this is a single compile-time action.
