Logging and $sys hacks.

I just hacked $sys.compile() on the Cold Dark to:

@program $sys.compile
arg code, name;
var line;

line = "SYSTEM: ." + tostr(name) + "() MODIFIED ";
line = line + $eng_time.ldate('mdy, 'dash) + "/" + $eng_time.ltime();
.log(line + " by " + sender().name('ref));
return compile(code, name);

Looks like:

SYSTEM: .compile() MODIFIED 5-24-94/12:22 pm by Brandon ($user_brandon)

What this means is that ANY change to $sys through the normal channels are
logged before they occur.  This does not allow for if a careless admin leaves
another method which writes to $sys open.
