The recent flush filter fix had a problem that you couldnt set a custom
BASE_PATH in _ss_environment because that file didnt get included until
after checking the confirmation token. This patch pulls the part of Core.php
that defines BASE_PATH into a seperate file that can be included earlier
in the startup sequence so that ParameterConfirmationToken can access it.
Core.php includes Constants.php with a require_once call, so for startup
scripts that dont pull in Constants.php themselves (like cli-script.php)
no change is needed.
