I wish HDD LEDs were multicolored so you could tell if it's writing, reading or whatever. Even if it changes too fast to be practical, it would still be nifty. Sort of like the load average speedometer on the BeBox.

Unfortunately that requires a hardware hacking license.  :-)

There are simpler ways too.  Tools like atop count writes to disks, or I

the SCSI cable-pulling experiment (which also requires a hardware hacking
license) as sufficiently conclusive.
