Saturday 11:35 07fed90: lua optimize current_path function

frees up around 500 bytes by using the builtin string functionality

Friday 09:58 0b7a8d5: Lua remove unusable/unneeded functions from rocklib_aux

rocklib_aux is auto generated from plugin.h there are a few functions that get added automatically that are unusable without their companion functions or duplicate functionality already supplied by lua

Duplicated functionality: rb->rand, rb->srand
-- see math.rand math.srand

rb->remove, rb->rename
-- see os.remove, os.rename

Unusable: rb->open_utf8
-- this should be added to the lua file open routines (if at all)

rb->codec_run_proc, rb->codec_close
-- without rb->codec_load_file these are pointless

rb->timer_set_period, timer_unregister
-- even with timer_register implemented lua is not
-- reentrant and crashes the state when timer fires

Shouldn't be used!: rb->strlcpy, rb->strlcat, rb->strcpy, rb->strcat
-- lua reuses strings by hashed values you break this contract if
-- you change strings behind its back plus lua provides a way to
-- do these functions safely within the strings api
