Would it make sense to make this a bit more capable, including the
Actually... N900 has rather complex LED blinking hardware. (Yes, it
has dedicated chip that can run simple "programs" for LED blinking).
It would be cool to have reasonable interface for N900 leds... and
perhaps its subset would work for you, too...

Hmm, would something like
echo 40 > step_length_ms
echo "- - - " > pattern
do the same trick?
Plus, you could for example do
echo "- --- " > pattern
to do morse code...
