pitchwheel? (seriously) DLS or GM defines a standard range for pitchweel,
so you could write/beg/borrow/steal some code to send a onetime pitchbend
message over alsasequencer that would retune all the synths to a
particular A tuning.

Assuming the soundfont engine supports pitchbend, but I would imagine it

FWIW my "less trivial" DSSI synth example supports retuning A, but in all
other ways its completely useless :)
