I didn't expect there to be some quick way to replace all the material
slots, but if the plan is to support that in the UI and depsgraph that's
great. There could be some complications in implementing that, I'm not sure.

The smarter system I was thinking of would automatically analyze the nodes
the nodes in the shader. Letting the users manually make collections for
this is useful too, but not quite the same. Anyway, it shouldn't affect the
current design.
