get_currentuserinfo is only needed if you're doing stuff really,
really early. When wp() is called, get_currentuserinfo is called
automatically; any filters/actions that are used after the wp action
just need to use the globals (it's been that way since 2.0). There are
only a tiny handful of actions that you can hook that *won't* have the
global data already set (most notably, plugins_loaded and init).
