Toggle network location?

There are plenty of widgets to toggle GPS on and off with a single tap. But what about the other location service? Getting your location from cell towers and WiFi networks also eats up your battery, and it lets Google track all your movements.

I toggle GPS with Dazzle. Of course Powerbar and Widgetsoid also work, and there are many more widgets to control GPS.

But managing network location still requires a trip to the settings menu. There's no widget for one click network location toggling. Sure, Google's warning popup (we'll track you even if you're not running location aware apps) may get in the way of a one click solution, but I'm sure that can be automated with a bit of code.

Any coders out there willing to give it a shot?
