I realize I'm late (real life is getting in the way of my fun right
now), but I just flashed the new kernel and observed the latest charge

Mickey is being very polite with the term "suboptimal".  I think when
you see it, the term most would use is "WRONG!" :)  Honestly, my first
reaction was to start poking at the screen to see if I had inadvertently
dialed a call and put someone on hold -- it's just the wrong LED to use.
It took a few moments for me to realize what that LED was telling me; it
shouldn't be that way. IMO lighting the one on the power button, right
beside the USB connector, is clearly the intuitive choice.

I know that's not anyone on this thread's decision -- please forward
this feedback to the appropriate decision-makers who made this choice,
as just a bit of feedback from one member of the user community.
