Re: Can you Separate notification and ringer volume in ICS (Android 4.x)

My previous phone (before ICS on the galaxy nexus) was a nexus one with cynaogenmod. Just upgraded to the samsung galaxy nexus and I will say that i'm very happy with the phone, but will echo everyone else's concern with the linked notification & ringer volume. I also used to use the "silent hours" option in cyanogen to mute email & reminder notifications from 1am->7am, but left the sms notification & ringer enabled (i too, have on-call duty and need to get after-hours calls). This ability to mute/change volumes for specific processes/services on a schedule was extremely useful, and I hope it comes back into ICS.
I also tried volumecontrol+, and it still has the ringer & notifications volumes linked. Also, the 'scheduler' in it seems to affect -all- volumes to if you want to mute them, not just specific volume options.
