Eclipse shadows in Orbiter ☀️🌑

Are there already plans for developping this feature in the next Orbiter release after version 2016?
It would improve the realism even further, and I would realy appreciate it.

Shadows of Moon on Earth and Earth on Moon, but also between other celestial bodies.
For Example the shadows in the Jupiter system.

Also applicable to the D3D9Client i guess ...

The shadow of an asteroid in low orbit above moon skipping. Picture1 the craft should be black. It is in the shadow. It might be the asteroid? Also the spotlight cannot 'shine' into the shadow. Attempting to use spotlights to create the eclipse affect. No shadow yet.
