How are you going to anyway?  Hydrogen kind of wigs out when you start
altering the tempo during play.  Doing it in ardour would probably be
too slow; then again it might actually work if you did it far enough
ahead...I don't know.  Usually though you have some idea what the
tempo is before you record.  When would you use 'realtime' tempo
changing and how would it work?
