Default S3 Custom selection button plate

Hey folks.
I've come up with a hardware idea to solve the tiny selection buttons problem. If I can get enough interest, I may have it professionally manufactured. It would be a simple aluminum plate with slightly bent tabs that allow for seeing the selection light. I'm just pricing out the manufacturing for a small run now and I wanted to get a feel for how many may be interested in purchasing one.
Please see attached pics. It would be easy to do custom colors and even custom labels or laser etching.
I mocked it up with some tape and a bunch of guitar picks for now and it works surprisingly well. It feels like they are all large buttons now. You can press anywhere on any of the picks and the selector button engages. For VCA spill etc this is SO handy.
