Over at xda, there's already a thread on this, but people are running into some problems. I made this thread to bring it to the attentions of developers here, and maybe they could help out.
Most of the work has actually already been done. There's a program called LedEffects which keeps tracks of notifications and can blink a led. There's also a program for the Samsung Moment which tries to use the capacitive buttons as indicators. If someone could merge these programs, and add some Galaxy S-specific code for controlling the backlight of the buttons, we'd be done!
I'm not a developer, so I can't help technically, but I really hope there's someone here at modaco who is willing to give this a shot.
