Save this Applescript as an app and toss it into your Dock for fast "fn" switching...

tell application "System Preferences"
set current pane to pane "com.apple.preference.keyboard"
end tell
tell application "System Events"
tell application process "System Preferences"
click radio button "Keyboard" of tab group 1 of window "Keyboard"
click checkbox "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" of tab group 1 of window "Keyboard"
end tell
quit application "System Preferences"
end tell

Notes:
-You have to have "Enable access for assistive devices" enabled (found in the "Universal Access" pane of "System Preferences").
-Hasn't been tested on Lion.
