>perhaps you could get really fancy and use a thermistor or something
similar which starts out at about 25 ohms and varies to ~1 ohm as it heats
up at the 1 ohm rating it is quite hot and could trip a thermally sensitive
relay to apply full power to the lights. this method would give both soft
-on and full power. btw a thermistor has a finite life span so carry a spare.
