Automatic dusk to dawn based scheduling of motion sensing

I would like the ability to automatically enable motion sensing at dusk, disable at dawn. This is similar to how modern light timers work for outdoor security lighting. Given the user's latitude it's possible to compute the precise time of dusk and dawn for any time of the year.

 

There are a number of techniques for doing the calculation - here's a starting point:

I would also like to see this feature.  Like the original poster said, this isn't hard to figure out given that you know the physical location.  It's a pain to have to keep adjusting this throughout the year as sunrise/sundown change.
