$_GET['q'] holds the current, internal system path.

menu_get_item() provides you the currently active menu router item.

menu_get_object() provides you a dynamic argument context from the menu
router item, if any.

	Subject: [development] Blocks and page context
	Good morning, 

	I am building a module and invoking hook_block.  I am wondering if
there is a way for my block to gain some context about the page on which it
will be rendered.  Primarily I would like to know if my block can be aware
of the URL of the page being displayed (not the http-requested URL in case
they differ), and the access permissions of the page being displayed (not
those of the block itself, or of the user accessing the block.
