New location of shading tools.

Split Normals, Stage I

Blender can now use “split normals” (i.e. normals per vertex per face) to draw smooth/sharp edges/faces in the 3DView, and both Cycles and BI renderers. In Edit mode, it also can draw split normals as lines, just like usual vertex or face ones.

Note that this option replaces the old AutoSmooth/Angle settings for meshes in BI (found in the Mesh buttons).
