Compositing Nodes, realistic lens flares.

There are some ways of doing this in blender, like ghost glare with some color mod. But there are really room for improvement, (many sliders are in a 0-1 range, but you can slide 1+ bug or feature?)

This blogpost is fun to read and could be nice to implement, I think blender needs a lens flare node to complete the glare node.

I agree… a lens flare node would be AWESOME… if anyone has used the GenArts Sapphire effects tools, they have some pretty realistic looking lensflares going on.
