Ecasound can probably meet your sync requirements.

According to the Ecasound User's Manual:

JACK's transport control interface allows controlling the
transport state of all the apps connected to one JACK server
from a single application. Ecasound can support this
functionality in four different modes ("notransport",
"send", "recv" and "sendrecv").

For Ecasound to respond to external transport controls, you
need to set:

-G:jack,eca_slave,recv # responds
or
-G:jack,eca_slave,sendrecv # sends as well as responds

Yours is a minority opinion on looks. :-)
Even this mother is not especially enamored of them.

To get the Tk interface via Debian, you'll need to:

apt-get install perl-tk

Or if by CPAN:

cpan Tk

To get Ecasound/Nama to respond to JACK transport you'll
need to set the configuration variables above in $HOME/.namarc
(created on the first run). I would suggest starting with:

ecasound_globals_default: "-z:mixmode,sum -G:jack,eca_slave,recv"

and deleting the line for 'ecasound_globals_realtime', which is
unnecessary.

FWIW, audacity clocks in at 54MB at startup, and
automatically detects (but does not start) JACK.
Did not test JACK transport sync.
