[Bf-committers] Reference Images Proposal

What if there was a reference object in the background image data, that 
when set lets the image get it's transform from any scene object? If the 
object is null then it just snaps back to the world origin.

That wouldn't be a corruption of any feature and doesn't seem to me to 
be something that difficult to do.

Then DnD onto an empty can just be a helper function/feature to go 
through those steps.
