[Bf-committers] Newton fluid control in smoke module

Hi Patrick,

The fluid simulator supports control objects, so I imagine the smoke
simulation system could get something similar, where you have a
Control smoke type next to Domain, Flow and Collision.

Miika Hämäläinen and Daniel Genrich are the smoke experts, they might
have more specific ideas about how this should be implemented.
