All reinstated. Not having them available was just unwieldy. The
last six are all aliases of eachother: \pageheight and \pdfpageheight
map to the same command code (\meaning shows \pageheight, I believe).
I have fixed some bugs today, and I have reverted back to strict
Unicode (2^20+2^16 possible characters instead of 2^21) because
in the current layout, that saves near 300Mb in virtual memory size.
Eventually, the affected arrays will become lua hashes, and we can
safely go back to 2^21 then.
