Advance lighting for lighter2

by Mohit Taneja for Crystal Space

Lighter2 module currently supports direct lighting for lightmap calculation. Though some work has been done previously on implementing global illumination using photon mapping. Its not yet in good enough condition. I would like to extend the photon mapping module to include support for area and polygon lights. And support for different types of materials like caustics and filtering materials.
