How complicated would surgery to fix this be? Is it reasonable to
create a wiki page detailing hw fix?

They won't draw any power when off... that part works as intended.
It's only when you turn them on, the transistor causes the CPU pin
itself to eat current itself due to an oversight. The effect in
consumption terms is something as if you lit several LEDs instead of the
one, say. But the LEDs come on and off as normal, are lit properly,
In normal use the LEDs aren't on much if at all, so it isn't anything
that would stop me getting an A5 personally.
