Actually, LEDs that can do PWM intensity on their own are common and
LEDs that can do PWM pretty advanced patterns are common in the cellphones,
as is the color. Unfortunately, good support in kernel is missing. It
would be good to change that.
In n900, I have a LED that can compute prime numbers then blink them,
autonomously. We probably don't need to support _that_, but common
support for patterns would be good.
