Have you tried 3rd-party solutions? Call Confirm app on the Market seems to do exactly what you need. I just installed it and can confirm that it works in conjunction with other apps (Voice Search, Google Voice, etc.)

In Google Voice app go to Menu -> More -> Settings -> Making calls -> Ask every time I make a call. Now you will be presented with a pop-up asking to choose whether or not to use Google Voice for this call.
