Fujifilm X-Pro1 & X-E1 with a Bracket

I was going through some old gear and found my old GA Strobe bracket.  A bracket which was sold around the time the Fujifilm GA645AF cameras were popular in the market.  It was also sold with a ridiculously sized GA strobe (4-AA's).  
The neat thing about this simple bracket was that it had a built in pc plug.  Of course that doesn't help me for the TTL I'd rather be shooting - but it does help get the flash firing.  
Then I got to thinking - what would be the best shooting combo?  So I set out to try a few different options.  I think I'm going with the X-E1 with the EF-20x in commander mode so the flash fires wirelessly by the strobe on the X-E1.  I do also like the video light option, but I'm not sure how practical that is for shooting in say a bar since once you turn that light on people tend to yell at you that it's too bright!~

 Look mom no wires!!

 I could easily go with the EF-20 and plug it into the sync - but then absolutely manual shooting.
