No, I prefer not to use any extra framework or app if it's possible.
Afaik lightflow would use about 20 mb ram, (correct me if I'm wrong), so I deceided on living with the wakelock bug instead of an external app. With this play service update it's quite managable so far.
@TangerineTractor: Thx for posting this, it does help with wakelocks. Tested with CM10.1 - previously a led notification would have drained my battery over a few hours, now it's only draining about 1%/h. Coolcoolcool.
May I ask you where did you find this, and why is it not avaliable from the play store? :(
