    I'd still rather have a rotation lock button.

    Yeah really. A home button AND a rotation lock button won't hurt anything will it?

    Seconded.

    I use the rotation lock several times a day, I rarely require the need to mute my device, and when I do it is easily achived by holding volume down for a second.

    I'd rather have it the other way around. Even though I don't have an iPad.

    I bet there's gonna be a Cydia patch for it... Most people prefer the Rotation Lock to a Mute button, plus you can mute by holding the vol. down key for a moment.
