Sorry, I tuned in late here...

So the plan is that if you're not using this new interface, it will go off at
the same absolute offset (23 hours after timer was set), but if you're using
this interface, your timer event gets interrupted, you get woken up (say)
15 hours into your 23, and it's your job to decide if you need to set a
new timer for the remaining 6, 7, 8 hours or some other number?
