Only thing I could think of would be to type MIDI files directly in

probably find it far less usable than the ones you listed.
Last summer a fellow got a commission from Google's Summer-of-Code to
add MIDI sequencing to Ardour, and he supposedly succeeded, but no one
has yet gotten around to merging his contributions with a stable
version of the program.
Linux needs a lot of things. I personally think the need for a
usable, visual, flexible notation program is more acute right now than
the need for a good sequencer. Or the need for a MIDI sequencer
capable of syncing to video. Or a good microtonal sequencer (which
I'm currently working on).
