It seems something unexpected came up in the last month...

Would anyone else mind checking the patch with a view to checking it in?

It's quite trivial now, I've pared the patch down so it changes as
little as possible, there's probably more additions to the manual/ lang
files than to the code.

BTW, the only difference from sideral's summary above, I didn't
implement renaming the existing "Sleep Timer" menu item to "Cancel Sleep
Timer (hh:mm)" when the sleep timer is active. It occurred to me that
this would only be accurate when the menu item was generated, if a user
required a countdown, they'd be better off with a theme that showed time
