At the momment, MIDI has to go first since I do not know of a DAW that
has an easy way to setup a tempo map according to a tempo on an audio
track. Though, If you feel interested by this feature, it would make 2
of us. ;-)

According to some talks on this topic at the linux audio conference,
the best way to have this implemented is to have tempo map support in
jackd. That would be just awesome...
