Hint: It needs to modify kernel structures on every reboot or install a driver to do so.

So your night vision isn't getting fucked with by the head lights of oncoming cars?
Or the street lights? Although they tend to be yellow (but that's probably because sodium vapor lights are efficient and reliable). The move to LED street lighting is going to see a lot more blue light at night (white LED's being a blue LED with yellow phosphor)
