[osg-users] translate transformation on projection matrices

This is just standard multi-camera view tiling as has been done in OpenGL
for years.

In a two-camera configuration, for example, you usually want the left camera
to show you the left part of the view, and the right camera to show you the
right part of the view. You do this by multiplying a translation into the
projection matrix.

If you didn't multiply this translation into the projection matrix, then all
cameras would render the same eye space, and you'd get the same image from
all cameras.

If you tried to do this by modifying the modelview matrix instead of the
projection matrix, the images wouldn't tile seamlessly.
