Oh and it allows me to have Dashclock entries for apps that don't have extensions (e.g. AOSP email app). This is actually the main reason I use Lightflow.
You actually do have some of these problems, but you don't realize it. There's no battery drain issue, bnut there are definitely bugs in it, that are due to Android's handling of the LED.
1. Rapid blinking of multiple colors when turning screen off -- this happens often, but is by design. I've spoken with the developer and he said there's several situations where Android will screw up the handling of the LED blinking and end up permanently blinking until you restart. Part of the fix for this is to rapidly blink a bunch of colors, which takes care of the issue. This doesn't occur every single time you turn the screen off, but it does happen often. You probably just haven't noticed it, and that's the point -- it's avoiding an annoying bug.
2. Blinking randomly when there is no notification --- this is still a problem, but has been mitigated a good bit over the past few updates. The phone sometimes will just blink for absolutely no reason at all. No notifications, etc, but it'll blink.
Those are the 2 main issues. It also tends to crash on occasion, but again the latest version has fixed/improved that issue.
