Defines functions raster_to_filenames

Documented in raster_to_filenames

#' Extract filenames from all Raster* objects.
#' 
#' @param x Raster*.  A Raster* object (even one without values/in memory) to determine the filename(s).
#' @param unique Logical. Only return unique filenames?  If FALSE, one filename per layer.
#' 
#' @return Character vector of filenames.
#' @author Jonathan A. Greenberg
#' @seealso \code{\link[raster]{filename}}
#' @details This is an expansion of filename() that allows for RasterStacks, in-memory Raster*s,
#' and Raster*s without values.  If a filename is not found, the entry will be "".
