Long-lasting bulbs already exist on the market.

I've lived in my house for five years, and in all that time none of the lightbulbs in our family room have burned out. We spend all our evenings in that room, and the lights are on from sunset until about 11 PM, every night.

That's probably 10,000+ hours on those bulbs. There are 8 bulbs in recessed ceiling fixtures, of the floodlight type, and all of them are still going strong. I wish I knew where the former owner bought them (and when he did!).
