>I suspect the major eco benefit of LED will be the very long life -

Both incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs are available in long-life versions. The first CFL I bought in the 1980's is still going (outside lamp that requires a ladder to change), and I was buying 2000 hr and 5000 hr incandescents just out of laziness (so I didn't have to change as often).

I suspect that people will continue to buy lamps that require frequent replacement.
