Let me take a step back: we have triggers.. like LED blinking.

How is that going to interact with patterns? We probably want the
patterns to be ignored in that case...?

Which suggest to me that we should treat patterns as a trigger. I
believe we do something similar with blinking already.

Then it is easy to determine if pattern is active, and pattern
vs. trigger issue is solved automatically.

Best regards,
Pavel
