speaking of brightness control...

I've been wanting to make a simple plugin to adjust display brightness
levels based on the time + date (ie: some delta from sunrise and
sunset). anyone already done this before I start?

There is a basic one, setting dim time and bright time, sets displays
appropriately in those regions:

nice. thanks. that works well enough for what i want right now and
should be good to improve on as needed if i want to have it
automatically adjust for sunrise/sunset.

btw, to get the AutoDisplay plugin's prefs page to work properly to
allow setting of different brightness values I had to debug it and
come up with this attached fix. (cc'ing the authors)

I just fixed a few things and sent you a copy off list. Please test. It should take care of a few things that I missed due to my terrible testing last time.
