Most of these people have machines that don't even support the shinies
so that what does it matter if we add them? And adding support for
shinies such as volumetric lighting would get rid of those ugly semi
transparent cones around lights and speed things up for people on low
end machines that have it disabled. See, it's a win win situation, I
get my shinies and they get better performace.
