Glowing option for blocks and plants

Issue description

I think that there should be a option for a glowing texture layer for blocks, similar to the entity glowing layer that was added in 2020.3.

It would be useful for blocks that are like magma blocks or sea lanterns. 
Also because if you set the block to have a light level, it only makes it have light, it does nothing for the texture, which makes it look weird because it looks dark even though it is the block that is giving off the light.

Please add this :)

Nice catch. Java code:

@OnlyIn(Dist.CLIENT) public boolean isEmissiveRendering(BlockState blockState) {
    return true;
