Again, perhaps something thats suited to a config setting.  When I set a
phone to be silent, I want it/need it to be totally silent - something
important might depend on it.  The treo650 has the best solution Ive
ever seen to this :)

In shr its possible to set up any of the 4 profiles - perhaps add
another thats "All silent", or have a checkbox to set it to phone or
all.  Thinking on it, its not really ffalarms responsibility, but
squarely a profile setting for a master audio kill switch.
