[drupal-devel] Question on block creation

Good evening!

Is there a "Drupally correct" way to do the following two things?

1. Obtain the current Drupal path without querying web server variables.

2. Know whether or not the current page is displaying a node in full-page view
   *from within a block* (i.e., *not* from within the node content creation).

I know how to do this as a kludgy hack, but is there a nice, elegant way to
obtain this info?

If not, a function like drupal_get_current_path() might be a useful addition
to core for 4.7, and probably easy to implement. :-)

Kind regards,
