LED Lighting

Sparkfun just started carrying these:

My excitement diminished somewhat when realized the leads coming out of the bottom is probably not the best choice. Still, they're fun and might be useful sometime.

I trust my dremel will be able to make a port to get the leads out one side but does the female bottom hold a stud?

Unfortunately, that too depends on your Dremel skills.

Now I'm thinking it would be both more flexible and probably cheaper to just buy a pack of 3mm whites, bricklink some trans-color 1×1s, and stand by with the Dremel and hot glue. The parts would definitely be cheaper, it's the shipping from multiple vendors that might kill it.
