    Nonetheless, they do exist.

    Leviton has some with an LED light that needs a neutral (but then it doesn't rely on leakage current through a switch loop):

    The pilot light switches have been around for a while but they're the opposite of what you want for seeing the switch in the dark: the light is only ON when the switch is already turned on. They're most useful to confirm that a load is turned on that you can't readily see or have access to.

    I would say that's exactly what the OP is looking for.
