                  Whilst ordinarily lights are sorted per rendered object 
                  (@see MovableObject::queryLights), texture shadows adds another issue
                  in that, given there is a finite number of shadow textures, we must
                  choose which lights to render texture shadows from based on the entire
                  frustum. These lights should always be listed first in every objects
                  own list, followed by any other lights which will not cast texture 
                  shadows (either because they have shadow casting off, or there aren't
                  enough shadow textures to service them).
            @par
                  This hook allows you to override the detailed ordering of the lights
                  per frustum. The default ordering is shadow casters first (which you 
                  must also respect if you override this method), and ordered
                  by distance from the camera within those 2 groups. Obviously the closest
                  lights with shadow casting enabled will be listed first. Only lights 
                  within the range of the frustum will be in the list.
            @param lightList The list of lights within range of the frustum which you

    /** Manages the organisation and rendering of a 'scene' i.e. a collection 
            of objects and potentially world geometry.
    @remarks
            This class defines the interface and the basic behaviour of a 
            'Scene Manager'. A SceneManager organises the culling and rendering of
            the scene, in conjunction with the RenderQueue. This class is designed 
            to be extended through subclassing in order to provide more specialised
            scene organisation structures for particular needs. The default 
            SceneManager culls based on a hierarchy of node bounding boxes, other
            implementations can use an octree (@see OctreeSceneManager), a BSP
            tree (@see BspSceneManager), and many other options. New SceneManager
            implementations can be added at runtime by plugins, see 
            SceneManagerEnumerator for the interfaces for adding new SceneManager
            types.
      @par
            There is a distinction between 'objects' (which subclass MovableObject, 
            and are movable, discrete objects in the world), and 'world geometry',
            which is large, generally static geometry. World geometry tends to 
            influence the SceneManager organisational structure (e.g. lots of indoor
            static geometry might result in a spatial tree structure) and as such
            world geometry is generally tied to a given SceneManager implementation,
            whilst MovableObject instances can be used with any SceneManager.
            Subclasses are free to define world geometry however they please.
      @par
            Multiple SceneManager instances can exist at one time, each one with 
            a distinct scene. Which SceneManager is used to render a scene is
            dependent on the Camera, which will always call back the SceneManager
            which created it to render the scene.

            @remarks
                  If you are updating the scene in a separate thread from the rendering
                  thread, then you should lock this mutex before making any changes to 
                  the scene graph - that means creating, modifying or deleting a
                  scene node, or attaching / detaching objects. It is <b>your</b> 
                  responsibility to take out this lock, the detail methods on the nodes
                  will not do it for you (for the reasons discussed below).
            @par
                  Note that locking this mutex will prevent the scene being rendered until 
                  it is unlocked again. Therefore you should do this sparingly. Try
                  to create any objects you need separately and fully prepare them
                  before doing all your scene graph work in one go, thus keeping this
                  lock for the shortest time possible.
            @note
                  A single global lock is used rather than a per-node lock since 
                  it keeps the number of locks required during rendering down to a 
                  minimum. Obtaining a lock, even if there is no contention, is not free
                  so for performance it is good to do it as little as possible. 
                  Since modifying the scene in a separate thread is a fairly
                  rare occurrence (relative to rendering), it is better to keep the 
                  locking required during rendering lower than to make update locks
                  more granular.

            /** Enables / disables a 'sky dome' i.e. an illusion of a curved sky.
            @remarks
                A sky dome is actually formed by 5 sides of a cube, but with
                texture coordinates generated such that the surface appears
                curved like a dome. Sky domes are appropriate where you need a
                realistic looking sky where the scene is not going to be
                'fogged', and there is always a 'floor' of some sort to prevent
                the viewer looking below the horizon (the distortion effect below
                the horizon can be pretty horrible, and there is never anyhting
                directly below the viewer). If you need a complete wrap-around
                background, use the setSkyBox method instead. You can actually
                combine a sky box and a sky dome if you want, to give a positional
                backdrop with an overlayed curved cloud layer.
            @par
                Sky domes work well with 2D repeating textures like clouds. You
                can change the apparant 'curvature' of the sky depending on how
                your scene is viewed - lower curvatures are better for 'open'
                scenes like landscapes, whilst higher curvatures are better for
                say FPS levels where you don't see a lot of the sky at once and
                the exaggerated curve looks good.
            @param
                enable True to enable the skydome, false to disable it
            @param
                materialName The name of the material the dome will use
            @param
                curvature The curvature of the dome. Good values are
                between 2 and 65. Higher values are more curved leading to
                a smoother effect, lower values are less curved meaning
                more distortion at the horizons but a better distance effect.
            @param
                tiling How many times to tile the texture(s) across the
                dome.
            @param
                distance Distance in world coorinates from the camera to
                each plane of the box the dome is rendered on. The default
                is normally OK.
            @param
                drawFirst If true, the dome is drawn before all other
                geometry in the scene, without updating the depth buffer.
                This is the safest rendering method since all other objects
                will always appear in front of the sky. However this is not
                the most efficient way if most of the sky is often occluded
                by other objects. If this is the case, you can set this
                parameter to false meaning it draws <em>after</em> all other
                geometry which can be an optimisation - however you must
                ensure that the distance value is large enough that no
                objects will 'poke through' the sky when it is rendered.
            @param
                orientation Optional parameter to specify the orientation
                of the dome. By default the 'top' of the dome is deemed to
                be in the +y direction, and the 'front' at the -z direction.
                You can use this parameter to rotate the sky if you want.

            / orientation of SceneNode objects, e.g. to make objects move along a path.
        @par
            You don't need to use an Animation object to move objects around - you can do it yourself
            using the methods of the Node in your FrameListener class. However, when you need relatively

        @remarks
            You can create Animation objects for animating SceneNode obejcts using the
            createAnimation method. However, in order to actually apply those animations
            you have to call methods on Node and Animation in a particular order (namely
            Node::resetToInitialState and Animation::apply). To make this easier and to
            help track the current time position of animations, the AnimationState object
            is provided. </p>
            So if you don't want to control animation application manually, call this method,
            update the returned object as you like every frame and let SceneManager apply 
            the animation state for you.
        @par
            Remember, AnimationState objects are disabled by default at creation time. 
            Turn them on when you want them using their setEnabled method.
        @par
            Note that any SceneNode affected by this automatic animation will have it's state
            reset to it's initial position before application of the animation. Unless specifically
            modified using Node::setInitialState the Node assumes it's initial state is at the
            origin. If you want the base state of the SceneNode to be elsewhere, make your changes

            'bake' this reference position into the node.

            There are multiple ways to generate shadows in a scene, and each has 
            strengths and weaknesses. 
            <ul><li>Stencil-based approaches can be used to 
            draw very long, extreme shadows without loss of precision and the 'additive'
            version can correctly show the shadowing of complex effects like bump mapping
            because they physically exclude the light from those areas. However, the edges
            are very sharp and stencils cannot handle transparency, and they involve a 
            fair amount of CPU work in order to calculate the shadow volumes, especially
            when animated objects are involved.</li>
            <li>Texture-based approaches are good for handling transparency (they can, for
            example, correctly shadow a mesh which uses alpha to represent holes), and they
            require little CPU overhead, and can happily shadow geometry which is deformed
            by a vertex program, unlike stencil shadows. However, they have a fixed precision 
            which can introduce 'jaggies' at long range and have fillrate issues of their own.</li>
            </ul>
        @par
            We support 2 kinds of stencil shadows, and 2 kinds of texture-based shadows, and one
            simple decal approach. The 2 stencil approaches differ in the amount of multipass work 
            that is required - the modulative approach simply 'darkens' areas in shadow after the 
            main render, which is the least expensive, whilst the additive approach has to perform 
            a render per light and adds the cumulative effect, whcih is more expensive but more 
            accurate. The texture based shadows both work in roughly the same way, the only difference is
            that the shadowmap approach is slightly more accurate, but requires a more recent
            graphics card.
        @par
            Note that because mixing many shadow techniques can cause problems, only one technique

                  example providing vertex and fragment programs to implement shadow

                  By default shadow receivers are rendered as a post-pass using basic
                  modulation. This allows basic projective texture shadows, but it's 
                  possible to use more advanced shadow techniques by overriding the 
                  caster and receiver materials, for example providing vertex and

            @par
                  You can rely on texture unit 0 containing the shadow texture, and

                  when rendering stencil shadows.
            @remarks
                  Stencil shadow coherency is very reliant on the shadow volume
                  not being clipped by the far plane. If this clipping happens, you
                  get a kind of 'negative' shadow effect. The best way to achieve
                  coherency is to move the far plane of the camera out to infinity,
                  thus preventing the far plane from clipping the shadow volumes.
                  When combined with vertex program extrusion of the volume to 
                  infinity, which   Ogre does when available, this results in very
                  robust shadow volumes. For this reason, when you enable stencil 
                  shadows, Ogre automatically changes your camera settings to 
                  project to infinity if the card supports it. You can disable this
                  behaviour if you like by calling this method; although you can 
                  never enable infinite projection if the card does not support it.
            @par  
                  If you disable infinite projection, or it is not available, 
                  you need to be far more careful with your light attenuation /
                  directional light extrusion distances to avoid clipping artefacts
                  at the far plane.
            @note
                  Recent cards will generally support infinite far plane projection.
                  However, we have found some cases where they do not, especially
                  on Direct3D. There is no standard capability we can check to 
                  validate this, so we use some heuristics based on experience:
                  <UL>
                  <LI>OpenGL always seems to support it no matter what the card</LI>
                  <LI>Direct3D on non-vertex program capable systems (including 
                  vertex program capable cards on Direct3D7) does not
                  support it</LI>
                  <LI>Direct3D on GeForce3 and GeForce4 Ti does not seem to support
                  infinite projection<LI>
                  </UL>
                  Therefore in the RenderSystem implementation, we may veto the use
                  of an infinite far plane based on these heuristics.
