Hello André,

the Appleseed renderer had a method like that implemented in last year’s GSOC, you can look at its source code here:
https://github.com/appleseedhq/appleseed/blob/master/src/appleseed/renderer/kernel/lighting/lighttree.cpp <https://github.com/appleseedhq/appleseed/blob/master/src/appleseed/renderer/kernel/lighting/lighttree.cpp>

Petra, the student who wrote the code, blogged about it here:

There’s also a discussion about many lights sampling here:
