Subject: Voiced compound units in settings menu

Voiced compound units in settings menu

From: Dan Everton <dan_at_iocaine.org>

Hi guys,

I'm looking at http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/2837 which says that
the sleep timer setting screen doesn't work on the remote. This is true
and is because the sleep timer setting screen is a custom one rather
than using set_option, so nothing is drawn to the remote.

So there I was ready to replace the screen with a simple call to
set_option when I realised why it was its own screen. You can't have
compound units (e.g. hours and minutes) in the set_option structure.

Now I could just replace the screen anyway and have it say "150 minutes"
instead of "2 hours 30 minutes", but that might not be so friendly for
our blind users. It would save some code size though and eliminate two
files.

So I guess I have two questions:

1. Would it be acceptable to change the sleep timer setting screen to
speak minutes instead of hours and minutes?
2. Are there any ideas on how to fix compound unit voicing?
