AF Light Addon?

Does anyone know of an independent AF light that I can buy and mount in the flash shoe? Something that illuminates only for focusing but automatically turns off for the photo so as to not interfere with the image? The only options I've seen are entire flash units which are a little overkill.

I'm not interested in taping an led light to the side of my camera. I want something more functional. It still amazes me that Olympus didn't put an AF light on the Pen cameras. How hard is it to add a 3mm led.

I'm interested in using it for indoor family gatherings where an external flash would be obnoxious but when using the built in flash of the E-PL1, it is next to impossible to focus.
