freyja 10.x shader fun

The new shader editor is pretty fun. I may just backport it to the stable 9.5 branch if I get enough time. Here's a cute lavaish glow map. Yeah, the interface needs much improvement but the prototype is moving toward finishing up the Mesh and SkeletalMesh support now. Hopefully 10.x branch will be released in a few months with the new renderer, IK animation system, and visual shader editor. That's the problem with full rewrites you mostly restart from nil. Normally I think backporting is a waste of time, but the improved shader editor is relatively low hanging fruit.
