[Bf-committers] Environment map render op

A while ago I added a "skip cameras" option to the render operator (in 
my local copy), to improve the export of environment maps. This works 
well, but looking ahead to possible trunk integration I'm not sure that 
it is good API design: external renderers will need to be updated to 
account for both the new setting and, more importantly, the fact that a 
render can now go ahead without an active camera.

What is the best approach to making these changes play nicely? Do 
external renderers expect these kind of breaking changes on new Blender
