You know, that gives me an idea.  Ignore the software and and just move
the transmit LED.  That is, unsolder the current on and in place, solder
to long wire leads and run them outside the box where you can then
solder the led to the wires and mount it, using electrical tape, in the
desired direction.  Not pretty, certainly not how I described it but
simply put, you're moving the transmission LED.
Good luck.
