On that note, most bedside alarm clocks I've ever used drift far more
than any computer (or mp3 player) I've come across.

But for me one of the main aims here is to have music start playing
gently about half an hour before I want to get up. I'll still probably
have my phone set to beep at the time I _need_ to get up, but the
music should slowly start waking me up, rather than a sudden jolt.
