	     xmms-alarm is a plugin, which allows xmms to be used
	     as an alarm clock. Just imagine the gentle, fading-in sounds
	     from your mainframe speakers, telling you it's another
	     monday morning.
	     I have tested this on NetBSD 1.6.1 / i386 and it works very good,
	     but don't blame me if it coredumps on your computer and you
	     miss the bus ;) The patch, which comments-out single line in 
	     alarm.c doesn't seem to have any impact on functionality,
	     when running this plugin on xmms/pth.
