    Hey folks,

    Not sure where to post feature requests these days, looks like feedback website died! Anyway would love a small change to Graphics.DrawMeshInstanced where it accepts NativeArray<Matrix4x4> as one of its input parameters so I can job the updates of my trees and pass the result directly.

    Guessing it will be pretty quick copying the arrays over as needed but would be cleaner if I can work directly on the Native arrays since I will be running the job on the main thread anyway to take advantage of burst.
