Another novelty script. Do you get tired of that boring all-white flash-light mode where you can use your swiveling LCD display to light your way in the dark? Wouldn't you like a nice orange light on occasion to help preserve your night vision? Okay, orange won't help much, but it's better than all-white for preserving night-vision. Or you could just use the color from the misc Draw Palette mode and select a red color for your light in the LCD, but then that ruins all the fun of this one.
Just make sure you have Red-Eye reduction turned on in your menus, run the script, then lift the flash unit. This works in nearly all modes of the S3 IS camera. Turn it off by pressing the shutter or exiting <ALT> mode.

A variation on the "torch" theme, specific to A6xx cams:
