In addition to the cheesy five dollar ultralight combination cable lock, I carry a velcro strap to lock down a brake lever. This makes a decent sort of kickstand, preventing the bike from rolling off your support, and will seriously slow down a thief on foot. I know because I've forgotten to take it off several times. Good idea above about black paint over everything. Some liberally applied scratches work, too. When I tour, people try to give me stuff, not take it away from me.
