The actual use case is to test a code path that imports windows forms 
inside the body of a method.

It is part of our startup code and we don't need to unconditionally 
import Windows Forms for the whole module (and need to import as little 
as possible at that point). Possibly moving that code into a support 
module where is can be more easily tested on its own would resolve this 
specific situation.
