Maybe a client-side option for extruded sprites?
Also, wieldhand animations would be really cool. Think animated torches :)

Then why is it ok to have the extrusion for entities? In theory someone could start dropping items like crazy which use the wielditem visual and make everyone's FPS drop.

I also think this would be a good option then. Both for those who need higher FPS (since now they would be able to disable the extrusion completely) and also for those with good computers who want to have nice visuals and 3D torchlike nodes.

Maybe if the FPS dropped or there are too many extrusions then Minetest could temporarily disabled it. 0.5 should have an adaptive graphics feature.
