This script now records positions and whether things exist. After playing parts of the run, rewind and do different things. The script will state whether things existed or not, and if they did, whether they changed position from the last time it got to that frame. The script will dumbly record into its memory every time you go back over a part, so if you just rerun the new input again, it will claim everything is present or absent exactly as they were.

The purpose, mainly, is so we can more easily tell if the CPU did something different when doing random crud.

Oh, and I changed the order of the player ghost functions. It'll record your new position after displaying what it has. Previously, it recorded, then displayed the recording, which will always coincide with the player's immediate position. At least this way, if you leave the ghost recorder on, that you can see the immediate local changes you're making, though it really isn't smart. Thanks to core resets killing lua variables, and one being triggered every time you play a new movie, cross-movie checks with this type of ghost stuff are impossible without file IO.

I do need a better frame detection (it doesn't like start of races). I also need a better way to detect whether a thing exists.
