Hardware can do quite a lot:

http://wiki.maemo.org/LED_patterns#Lysti_Format_Engine_Patterns_and_Commands

(and more).

I implemented compiler for it (should we put it into tools/ somewhere?)

https://gitorious.org/tui/tui/source/5b3f5cacf8e208d3ea50d6066e549940d85e55be:maemo/notcc.py

It can do quite a lot, including prime number computation. This uses
33% of program memory and only one of three execution units; but it
does not work, maybe I made mistake somewhere or maybe our kernel
can't take program this long. It only has 3 writable variables, which
is quite limiting.

start()
a = 1
next_number: a += 1
b = 1
next_divisor: b += 1
br = b
if (b==a) goto is_prime
c = 0
c = c+b
test_prime: if (c==a) goto not_prime
if (a<c) goto not_divisor
c = c+b
goto test_prime
not_divisor: goto next_divisor
not_prime: goto next_number
is_prime: b = 0
show_prime: c = 255
br = c
ramp_up_long(30,0)
c = 0
br = c
ramp_up_long(30,0)
b += 1
if (b == a) goto next_number2
goto show_prime
next_number2: goto next_number

Well... this one is turing complete, and I have a compiler, but I
don't think it is good interface, either for library or kernel.

I believe series of RGB values might be good interface, maybe with
additional "want interpolation between these".
