How about this one:

*** Settings > General > System > Sleep timer ***
Default sleep timer duration (time)
Start at boot (yes/no)

*** System > (Date & Time) menu ***
"Start sleep timer" -> Brings back the old sleep timer selector
with the "default sleep timer duration" selected as default.

That way we would get the persistent sleep timer and a sensible
default value while keeping to freedom to choose another value easily.

Changes to current patch:
- "Sleep timer duration" becomes "Default sleep timer duration"
- Add selector back to start sleep timer menu entry
