I don't know what the ACPI interface looks like, but the lid status
led goes into sine-wave mode during suspend. Note, that the power-led
also goes into sine-wave mode during suspend and is already supported
by thinkpad-acpi's LED code (without the sine-wave feature as far
as I can tell).

"status" looks a bit generic. I suggest "external_lid_status".

Adam, can you prepare an updated patch? I would like to use this
led to notify myself about events (i.e. compilation finished)
while my thinkpad's lid is closed.
