I'm already playing with this idea in my head for some time. I've a 
package called "vdr-addon-acpiwakeup" in my repository at e-tobi.net 
that uses /proc/acpi/alarm to wakeup the machine for the next VDR timer 
event. My idea is to merge nvram-wakeup and acpiwakeup into a single 
package with a common wakeup interface that can be used by different 
applications. nvram or acpi would then just be a strategy that can be 
configured somewhere (e.g. /etc/wakup.conf). A simple set of shell 
scripts might then be used by applications to set and unset a wakeup 
time. When shutting down the system, an init script sets the wakeup time 
to the nearest time.

Let's think about this, when a collision comes across :-)
