That is, regardless who the current user is, I would like to see if there is a function to let me know if user0 can access the current page, essentially a test to see if the current page is available to anonymous users or not.
I don't think there's an easy way. The access checking for
menu_get_item() is done in _menu_check_access(). This figures out and
calls the access callback for the particular menu item. For the most
general case of a menu item with a custom access callback, it would
probably not be possible to modify the function to check a specific
$account instead of the current global $user, without some sort of hack.
