Does anyone know whether there are any ALPS keycaps that support backlighting? Ordered an ErgoDox with Matias Quiet Clicks, and would consider installing LEDs if there were keycaps available.

If you use 2x3x4mm there should be enough room under the PCB to do this: http://m.imgur.com/a/JMvav

nice ghetto rig for LED there, although I would prefer white or green led for stronger illumination.

Can conform this. I recently built one and used 2x3x4mm LED's under the PCB, because I had no sip sockets and wanted to make sure I could take advantage of the fact that I can open up the switches without desoldering thanks to the top plate. You could always install the LEDs in switch as well, but with SA keycap sets (Carbon is going on here) there is not much point in that. May switch them out for orange LEDS in the future.
