Nice! I will try to show up, although I may try to continue working on 
my own bike light system which is controlled by a combination of light 
sensor (off in sunlight) and pressure sensor on the seat (off when I'm 
not biking).

<puts on annoying hat> Have you got data indicating that bikers with 
lights die less often (from biking accidents) than bikers without 
lights?  Is the result controlled for skill at biking, intoxication of 
rider, phase of the moon, and level of unclothed-ness of nearby 
attractive pedestrians?
