Allow the Sprite randerer to cast and recieve dynamic shadows

Unity 2D is missing an important feature.

Unity should be able to have lights and shadows work like a good old Box2DLights.

In my case, I'm working on a top-down rogue-like and having only lights but no shadows make it feel a bit strange.

I hope Unity will soon have such an "easy" feature implemented.

Thanks to the team, you're doing excellent work !

    This feature is on the Roadmap; 3rd item on the Research list - "2D: Standard Shader for Various Image Effects" - https://unity3d.com/unity/roadmap. Unfortunately, this probably means it's a far way off :(
