Half asleep I had a quick flip through the howto. It seems to add JACK 
transport support to Blender?! If so, Blender could be synced to other 
applications too, e.g. MIDI sequencers?! Anyway, I guess sync also 
should be possible by using an audio track of Blender for SMPTE, but I 
never tested Linux audio applications synced by SMPTE. Reading LTC, 
SMPTE seems to be possible with Linux and IMO this should be the normal 
way to sync an application like Blender or any other kind of video and 
animation software to any audio and other video equipment, imagine you 
want to mix 3D animations with "real" video recordings, by a Sony 
Betacam, Fastmachine etc. and other common equipment. A SMPTE track 
could sync to every equipment, hardware, software, video and audio, 
anyway an interesting information. Thank you.
