lua date function

lua spec has os.date if this was supported we could do os.date("%a", os.time-(24*60*60)) to return the string Wed (which is yesterday when today is Thursday).

This would also give access to current UTC, something that is often requested.

In addition, it would give access to the ISO week number via os.date("%V"). The week number currently available is not useful for anyone outside the US.
