Flashlight / Persistent AF-light

Issue #2342 wontfix
Daniel created an issue

It would imo be simple and useful to have an option to turn on the AF-light (and keep it on) to for example use the camera as a simple torch (I like the orange light because it's lighting up the enviroment but doesn't dazzle your eyes) or use it as focusing help even when shooting without flash.

I think it would be kinda simple to implement if somebody already has figured how to control the AF-light.

    I've got it working a long time ago on 550D, here. The implementation was pretty hackish, so I discarded it, but can still be fun to experiment with.
