Cleanest solution would be to use an mu-plugin, as they load before all
normal plugins. You could make your whole plugin an mu-plugin or have a
special one that just handles this particular task ahead of time. Obviously
it won't solve the problem if *another* mu plugin already defined the
function, but that seems a lot less likely than a regular plugin.

This is probably not a good solution for a publicly released plugins as it
involves hand-uploading files but for a custom installation an mu-plugin
isn't a huge burden (and for custom scenarios they have many uses once you
learn how to exploit their power).
