on-off-on "light switch"

As an aside, a standard "3 way" light switch is SPDT and so could easily switch between two sources-but without the center off.

I considered a 3-way, but needed the off capability.  As well, I just placed an inline fuse (2-amp) in the setup.  The lights (small LED strips) probably only consume about 1-amp of current.
