Is it possible to create a plugin for the modeller/scene-editor to make new rendering-modes?

So I can for example, have the perspective-view celshaded?

Well, simple question, simple answer: No.

Theoretically though it could probably be done (at least in Layout), but no in a viewport, and it would mean you'd have to write a complete openGL rendering engine yourself.

Cheers,
Mike

That would be a nice feature request though, building custom output services with LScript, or C plugins or what-have-you.

It would certainly put LW apart from anything else, anywhere in the universe.

Not really, other apps have features similar to that. You can code shaders using Cg or something similar, basically a realtime 3D shading language used by all new gfx boards.
