"Bistro" Firmware
=================
 While off:
      - Fully click and release to turn the light on.  It will go to the
      first mode or the last-used mode, depending on whether you enabled
      mode memory.
 While on:      
      - Short tap: Do a short (less than 0.5s) half-press to go forward to
      the next mode.
      - Med tap: Do a medium (0.5s to 1.5s) half-press to go backward to
      the previous mode, if medium-press is enabled.
      - Long tap: Do a long (longer than 1.5s) half-press to reset to the
      first mode (if mode memory is turned off).
      - Or fully click and release to turn the light off.
      - Short tap a bunch of times (15+ taps, or until the light stops
      turning on) to enter config mode.
Hidden modes:
     - Go backward from moon to access the hidden modes.  They are, in
      order:
     - Turbo (just like the regular turbo)
     - Tactical / police strobe (7 Hz / 14 Hz alternating)
     - Battery check / beacon mode
        It should blink out the voltage in whole numbers then a '.' then
        tenths.  So, for 3.6V it would blink out "--- . ------".  
        Voltage range is from about 2.5V to 4.4V
     - Biking flasher (2-level stutter beacon, 1 Hz)
Configuration options:
     -The config mode has several options.  It will blink out a number to
     show which option is active, then "buzz" or "stutter" for a bit.  
    Click during the "buzz" to select that option.  Some options may
    enter a secondary config mode after the light turns back on.
 Options include:
        1. Muggle mode / simple mode.  Good while lending the light to
         others.  It overrides other config settings temporarily:
         - low/med/high, in that order, with high at about half power.
         - no moon, no memory, no medium-presses, no hidden modes
         - the only config option is the option to exit muggle mode
        2. Mode memory.  Off or on.
        3. Moon.  Select to turn moon mode on or off.  This is in addition
         to the other regular modes, so you get 2 to 9 levels when moon
         is enabled.
         4. Mode order.  Low to high, or high to low.
         5. Mode group.  Choice of 1 to 6 regular modes from low to turbo,
         or one of 3 special groups.  After clicking, the light should
         come on in a special group-select mode.  In this mode, it
         slowly blinks 9 times, pauses, then repeats.  Turn the light
         off after N blinks to select mode group N.
         The mode groups are:
         1. 1300 lm only
         2. 8, 1300 lm
         3. 8, 235, 1300
         4. 8, 104, 506, 1300
         5. 8, 75, 254, 642, 1300
         6. 8, 50, 167, 366, 757, 1300
         7. 140, 1300, strobe
            (police modes)
         8. bike flasher, battcheck, 8, 140, 1300
            (biking modes)
         9. 4, 36, 140, 500, 1300
            (like group 5 but lower)
         Example: To select group 3 (low-med-high), let it blink three
         times then click the button.
         Note: (output is for example only and depends on led option)
    6. Medium-press.  Off or on.  If on, a medium-press will allow
         going backward through the mode sequence, and hidden blinky
         modes will be accessible.
    7. Thermal calibration.  Set the temperature at which the light
         will begin stepping down to cool itself off.  After clicking to
         select this, the light should turn on in a special thermal
         calibration mode.  It will start at a medium-low brightness,
         wait a second or two, then step up to turbo.
        - To turn off thermal regulation, click within the first second
           (while the output is relatively low).
        - To set a new maximum temperature, leave the light on until
           you think it is too hot, then turn it off.  From this point
           on, the light will use that new temperature as its maximum
           allowed heat.
           Note that there may be a delay between when you feel the heat
           and when the MCU feels the heat, so the value saved may be a
           little bit lower than expected.
      8. Factory reset.  Change all settings back to default.
