Android lock screenAndroid silent widget

Android 2.2 took away the ability to silence your phone using the volume button. Used to be you'd just hit volume down until you hit silent mode, and that was it. So how do you do it now? A few options: First is to go to the lock screen (press the power button once to turn the screen off, and again to wake the phone) and use the slider. Another is to use a widget button like you see above -- there are plenty in the Android Market. Have another option? Share in the comments below. (And if Google wants to add this back in Android 2.3, we'd be OK with that.)
