You know, I cooked up a little switch control for just that kind of thing. A single tap toggles the output (smoke or whatever you please) on or off. Hold it down for more than half a second or so, and it will turn the output on until you release it, then turn it off. Seems like it would be be easy and intuitive to use. I personally don't have a use case for it right now, but I did breadboard the thing and it worked. Wouldn't take much to solder up a few prototypes.
