In fact, the constants set interface is already bound to the SMaterial, whenever a material is set, it uses the proper interface to set the constants of any shader. Thus, it is simpler to modify the constants set interface to have the proper scene node. Setting something similar to a lighting manager that executed an "onNodePreRender" to set the current node would help.

That's also what I understood from the initial request, and that's why I said that this has nothing to do with the user data discussion. IIRC, we have some similar change already in the ogl-es branch, which we will merge back for Irrlicht 1.9. Maybe we can build something on top of the light manager structures, or simply give access to some stats struct via the video driver. But there's no need to pass along some maps or other huge data structs.

What's sad is that hybrid was talking about Irrlicht 1.9 back in 2012.
