Alarms do work for me in the sense that I can get the UI dialog to show
at the right time. Via "Clock", I just add a new alarm for the next
minute, and then wait.

But there is no sound and no vibration - we're working that out now.
There are a few things going on:

1. The 'alarm' module needs to be loaded in mce.ini (per uvos)
2. Some pulseaudio callback is not firing in `hildon-plugins-notify-sv`
causing the vibration to also not be started (per freemangordon)

So we need to figure out if this is pulseaudio policy related, or
something else entirely.

You're welcome. I've observed some problems with it still that we'll
have to fix in time:

1. Seems to just crash after a while (timer related, probably simple fix?)
2. Scrolling stops working in some widgets some times
3. Scrolling doesn't yet work in the day/time selection widgets, making
it very painful to select some later/earlier time/days.

But the synchronisation works, so that's cool!
