Default After market Sonos Software / Hacks?

Are there any after market Sonos software / hacks? E.g., I've love to add a sleep timer to my Sonos player... A wake up timer would be great too...

That isn't a hack. uploading custom software to a controller or player would be a hack. Adding a micrphone to a sonos control would be a hack.

I think one can get their hands on the Sonos software by using a sniffer such as Ethereal to capture a software upgrade.

Well, if your so inclined you can open up the DLL files supplied with the desktop software to reveal all manner of interesting things. All the interface graphics are stored there and plenty of fun can be had rearranging them!

Do so at your own risk, I presume.

Search the forums for "sleep timer" and "perl".
