Minecraft Light Sensor

Ever wished you could have Minecraft ‘machines’ buttons / switches / pistons etc that were triggered by light or lack thereof? Like lights that only turn on when it is dark?

Beta 1.6 Simple Trap Door Lava Trap

Oh, and a pressure plate. The trap mechanism is simple, herpty derpty enemy or mob comes by, steps on pressure plate and suddenly the floor is lava!
