    /** Class defining a single pass of a Technique (of a Material), ie
        a single rendering call.
    @remarks
        Rendering can be repeated with many passes for more complex effects.
        Each pass is either a fixed-function pass (meaning it does not use
        a vertex or fragment program) or a programmable pass (meaning it does
        use either a vertex and fragment program, or both).
    @par
        Programmable passes are complex to define, because they require custom
        programs and you have to set all constant inputs to the programs (like
        the position of lights, any base material colours you wish to use etc), but
        they do give you much total flexibility over the algorithms used to render your
        pass, and you can create some effects which are impossible with a fixed-function pass.
        On the other hand, you can define a fixed-function pass in very little time, and
        you can use a range of fixed-function effects like environment mapping very
        easily, plus your pass will be more likely to be compatible with older hardware.
        There are pros and cons to both, just remember that if you use a programmable
        pass to create some great effects, allow more time for definition and testing.

            @remarks
                  The hashcode of a Pass is used to sort Passes for rendering, in order
                  to reduce the number of render state changes. Each Pass represents a
                  single unique set of states, but by ordering them, state changes can
                  be minimised between passes. An implementation of this functor should
                  order passes so that the elements that you want to keep constant are
                  sorted next to each other.

                  Some drivers have an upper limit on the size of points they support

                  point sizes that cause the point sprites to get very large on screen,
                  since they may get clamped on some cards. Upper sizes can range from

        When polygons are coplanar, you can get problems with 'depth fighting' where

        a problem for decals (polys attached to another surface to represent details such as

        A way to combat this problem is to use a depth bias to adjust the depth buffer value
        used for the decal such that it is slightly higher than the true value, ensuring that
        the decal appears on top. There are two aspects to the biasing, a constant
            bias value and a slope-relative biasing value, which varies according to the
            maximum depth slope relative to the camera, ie:

                  The default behaviour for a pass (when this option is 'false'), is
                  for a pass to be rendered only once (or the number of times set in
                  setPassIterationCount), with all the lights which could
                  affect this object set at the same time (up to the maximum lights
                  allowed in the render system, which is typically 8).
            @par
                  Setting this option to 'true' changes this behaviour, such that
                  instead of trying to issue render this pass once per object, it
                  is run <b>per light</b>, or for a group of 'n' lights each time
                  which can affect this object, the number of
                  times set in setPassIterationCount (default is once). In
                  this case, only light index 0 is ever used, and is a different light
                  every time the pass is issued, up to the total number of lights
                  which is affecting this object. This has 2 advantages:
                  <ul><li>There is no limit on the number of lights which can be
                  supported</li>
                  <li>It's easier to write vertex / fragment programs for this because
                  a single program can be used for any number of lights</li>
                  </ul>
                  However, this technique is more expensive, and typically you
                  will want an additional ambient pass, because if no lights are 
                  affecting the object it will not be rendered at all, which will look
                  odd even if ambient light is zero (imagine if there are lit objects
                  behind it - the objects silhouette would not show up). Therefore,
                  use this option with care, and you would be well advised to provide
                  a less expensive fallback technique for use in the distance.
            @note
                  The number of times this pass runs is still limited by the maximum
                  number of lights allowed as set in setMaxSimultaneousLights, so
                  you will never get more passes than this. Also, the iteration is
                  started from the 'start light' as set in Pass::setStartLight, and
                  the number of passes is the number of lights to iterate over divided
                  by the number of lights per iteration (default 1, set by 
                  setLightCountPerIteration).

        Texture-based shadows require that the caster is rendered to a texture
        in a solid colour (the shadow colour in the case of modulative texture
        shadows). Whilst Ogre can arrange this for the fixed function

        programs still to run in order to preserve any deformation etc
        that it does. However, lighting calculations must be a lot simpler,
        with only the ambient colour being used (which the engine will ensure

        colour of the vertex to the ambient colour, as bound using the
        standard auto parameter binding mechanism.
        @note
        Some vertex programs will work without doing this, because Ogre ensures
        that all lights except for ambient are set black. However, the chances
        are that your vertex program is doing a lot of unnecessary work in this
        case, since the other lights are having no effect, and it is good practice
        to supply an alternative.

            @remarks
                  Texture shadows are applied by rendering the receiver. Modulative texture
                  shadows are performed as a post-render darkening pass, and as such
                  fragment programs are generally not required per-object. Additive
                  texture shadows, however, are applied by accumulating light masked
                  out using a texture shadow (black & white by default, unless you
                  customise this using SceneManager::setCustomShadowCasterMaterial).
                  OGRE can do this for you for most materials, but if you use a custom
                  lighting program (e.g. per pixel lighting) then you'll need to provide
                  a custom version for receiving shadows. You don't need to provide
                  this for shadow casters if you don't use self-shadowing since they
                  will never be shadow receivers too.
            @par
                  The shadow texture is always bound to texture unit 0 when rendering
                  texture shadow passes. Therefore your custom shadow receiver program
                  may well just need to shift it's texture unit usage up by one unit,
                  and take the shadow texture into account in its calculations.

                  You absolutely must not change the hash function whilst any Pass instances
                  exist in the render queue. The only time you can do this is either
                  before you render anything, or directly after you manuall call
                  RenderQueue::clear(true) to completely destroy the queue structures.

                  You can also use one of the built-in hash functions, see the alternate version
                  of this method. The default is MIN_TEXTURE_CHANGE.
