Another round at downloading all extensions and grepping for misc.

Are currently used:

version() for debugging and for testing if required version is present.
copyright() for debugging.
mdate() for debugging callbacks.
mwait() for doing a sleep/poll.
cachedir() to store metadata.
And only one another extension seems to use homedir(), which we can fix.

I think we can fix some of those easily.
