Raytrace Optimization

by André for Blender Foundation

This proposal aims at optimizing blender raytrace. Including: * Making it faster * Support for render instancing * Added support for generic objects (used to implement instancing but later can be expanded into LOD) * Script to measure performance * Removing worst-cases * Make it easier to try tweaks and different data structures.
