[Suggestion] [✔ Done] Option to use Location API on Win7+
Windows 7 (and later 8, 8.1, 10) exposes a geolocation interface [Location and Sensors API] that can be used to automatically determine user's current location.
Now, there are two ways of designing it:
Option 1: Just a 'Get my current location' button in the context menu / Location window
Gets the job done, but needs some user interaction.
Option 2: A 'Get my current location every 24 hours' option in the settings window
Is more useful for frequent travelers , when schedule forces you to change location every week or so with up to 4 timezones difference, and you might forget changing this setting manually (<-- actual real use case).
Before you say "OK that's a neat feature but F.lux's home is Mac, and we won't be bothered unless you can do the same in OS X as well", here's a blog post from 2009 detailing a similar API that's present in both OS X and iOS: http://www.cocoawithlove.com/2009/09/whereismymac-snow-leopard-corelocation.html
Yes we already have it done in a new version. It's pretty good!

@justgetflux sweet! I'm traveling and f.lux is giving me prompts, some detection would go a long way to resolving this! :)
