Synchronisation is a hot topic for me as well.  As far as I understand 
it, if you want to sync 2 programs your best bet is to use jack 
master/slave.  Ardour currently syncs with jack.  In other words, after 
making the proper settings in Ardour and you press play in Ardour you 
can see the jack transport move as well - which to me is a sign of great 
hope.  I have heard that the CVS version of Hydrogen also syncs with 
jack.  I have read in the MusE list that they have got it working as 
well since the last stable release (0.6.2) - so it's possible that if 
you tried the CVS version it would work - although there are 2 different 
development trees and I don't know which one you should try.  I don't 
know about the status of Rosegarden.  Anyways - In summary it is getting 
really close.  I'd love to hear if you make any further progress.  Also 
if anyone else has better information please correct me.
