[development] low hanging fruit for Drupal 6: variable defaults

There are times one might try to access a variable defined by another 
module, such as variable_get('site_name', 'Drupal'); This would make it 
easier to avoid having to remember later if that's supposed to be 
variable_get('site_name', 'drupal'), variable_get('site_name', 
t('Drupal')), variable_get('site_name', SYSTEM_SITE_NAME_DEFAULT), or 
whatever. I believe just calling variable_get('site_name') would 
certainly makes things more standard, and easier to maintain.

And having a namespace available would be the cherry on top.
