You are more easily woken during light sleep so it's probably good 
enough to start playing music at low volume and step up the volume 
slowly over a period. If You still sleeping at the end deadline, shut up 
the music, wait a few seconds, the make that horrible nose that wake 

Most optimal is to control a light dimmer, and slowly turn up the light. 
Light influence Your 'sleephormons' and You will wake even more rested. 
But that hard to implement unless You sleep with Your VR-glasses on :-)

But... this is still a shortcoming in all gui alarm/calendar apps I 
know. The ability to control just about everything like at/cron and cli 
friends can. If it would be possible to control at least the media 
player and volume... it would be nice.
