Well thanks for your feedback and your time on this.
The goal was to have something very small and discrete, hence the icon. We already have the OSD plugin that can do similar task as your suggesting, I guess. The other advantage to have it in the taskbar is that we have the "info" visible all the time, no other window will hide or bother the "LED icon".
I don't know what to say, I don't want to impose anything.
