[AG-TECH] triggering light red bulb with VIC - Serious!!

We were brainstorming about why people think they can "Chat" in the the 
background while other people are talking during a grid session and my 
boss was wondering if there was a way to trigger a Red light bulb (like 
in the old Radio studio days) when the vic transmit check box is 
selected to indicate we were "on air"

I was thinking that If there was a way to detect it, it would be fairly 
easy to write some perl to trigger something home-made through the 
serial port (at least on linux).

Can anybody think of a way to detect "transmit" in ovic or uclvic?
