- pass pointer to (char*) instead of (zend_string*) to spprintf (issue #431)

- expose a "global" symbol that references the global scope (like on Node.js)
- modules may return arbitrary values (not just objects; now like on Node.js)
- pick up exports from "module.exports" also (like on Node.js)
- handle exceptions thrown in module loader/normaliser like in other PHP scopes called from JS
(i.e. by default terminate execution, optionally propagate to JS side)

V8Js' modules vastly behave like Node.js modules now \o/
