It'd be nice, especially when crossing a wide open space, to know what 
direction the sun is in versus what direction the destination is in so that one 
could cross that space while keeping the sun at the right angle on ones face. 
This wouldn't be perfect, e.g. it wouldn't work on a cloudy day, but it'd be an 
additional tool which one could use when appropriate.

That would indeed be interesting to have.
