That's fantastic!!! I especially love the accelerando feature for practicing. A big improvement over jack_metro.
Only thing that might be nice, is if it read stdin for keyboard commands (i.e. up-arrow/down-arrows), or opened an ALSA MIDI port to read CC's, for things like modifying the speed and/or volume, or to stop/start the metronome, etc.
