You, and that concept of easy... ;-) As implemented it's a stand alone 
bit of code.

Aside: I did manage to use some of the object flags to break out 
light_sources, csg (merge,union,difference,intersection), light unions 
and light groups from the object id category. The id sub-catagories Left 
in as probably more useful than not, but there is the nagging thought it 
might somewhere be the wrong thing to do.
