Blue Skies v1.05

  - New Feature: Time of Day cycling
  - New Feature: Sun and Moon
  - Bug Fix: Flickering clouds

Since the first thing people always ask for is time of day shifting, here it is!  This one was kind of tricky to get looking good, as it's fairly fill-rate expensive already so I'm trying to avoid blending from one background to another and do everything with color tinting.  In the process I added a moving sun and moon that key off the time of day as well.  The sun is always there, and the moon only shows up if you have time of day enabled.

The occasional cloud flickering you might have seen was due a bug in my sorting code, it should be smoothed out now.

EDIT:  I tell a lie, the flickering still happens.  Amazing, I didn't see it the entire time I was testing the time of day stuff, then see it happen right after I publish the update.  I guess that's tomorrow's task.
