Sunlight Only checkbox

Would it be possible to integrate a "sunlight only" checkbox into the interface? I was looking for a simple off switch of all interior lights and there doesn't seem to be one or at least not one I'm finding very easily. This would make it a lot quicker for users rather than having to go through each lighting material and turning it off (and more than likely forgetting the perfect setting we found for that light).

Have I just missed a setting somewhere?

LightUp always adds any PointLightSources to a Layer called LU_Lights to allow you to easily hide the layer - and thus not contribute lighting. This may go some way to helping here.

However, Area lights don't currently have a global on/off switch.

Added a "Use Area Lights" Preference for v2.6e (default to 'on') to allow you to quickly disable all area lights.
