Patch - adds 'log_' prefix to loggers; aliases loggers w/old names

I renamed all logger functions ("warn", "debug", "info", etc) to include a
"log_" prefix. 

I modified template-init.lua to include aliases to the old logger names in
order to provide backward compatibility. The template also defines:

1) 'DEBUG_TABLE':
A global variable to allow access to the Lua debug table while allowing for the
'debug' alias.

2) log_fix_names(): 
To undo the aliasing (i.e., restore 'debug' to its original and real self),
call log_fix_names() from Lua. This would be useful for 3rd-party Lua libraries
that require 'debug' to really be the Lua debug table.

NOTE: At some point, the aliasing should be removed, and Lua developers will be
required to use the real logger names.
