Is it possible to make chameleon do this? Preferably after a few seconds to allow me to pick my (eventual) windows install, or right away if not? I have a bluetooth keyboard connected to my computer which isn't detected until OS X boots, so right now when I need to reboot I have to plug in a USB keyboard to select SL.

If you installed chameleon from MultiBeast it already does this unless you have modified your com.apple.boot.plist in /Extra.
Look for:

<key>timeout</key>
<string>x</string>

where x is some number greater than 0 that represents seconds until default OS boots automatically. If x = 0 it will do the same thing as:

<key>Instant Menu</key>
<string>yes</string>
