I have sync'd RG and ardour before, but with a constant tempo.  My 
fallback plan is to have RG create an audio file click track based on 
its tempo ramp, then use that audio file as a click track in ardour.
I'd expect that the bars in ardour would be of little use.  But,
this should get me running.
