I was thinking the same thing for 'The baby room', etc. However, we
might want to be a little careful with the manager that switches
profiles. e.g. In 'airplane' mode, it shouldn't switch to 'silent with
radio on' when your flight path goes near your home:) I suppose that
the gps shouldn't be on either in airplane mode, but I hope it
illustrates the point. In summary, I think that the profile manager
should be able to have sticky profiles or the ability to veto requests
by the gps auto-profile switcher/deamon to change profiles.
