You are a bit late actually. :)

    [PATCH] nice and rt-prio rlimits
    Add a pair of rlimits for allowing non-root tasks to raise nice and rt
    priorities. Defaults to traditional behavior. Originally written by
    Chris Wright.
    The patch implements a simple rlimit ceiling for the RT (and nice)
    a task can set. The rlimit defaults to 0, meaning no change in behavior by
    default. A value of 50 means RT priority levels 1-50 are allowed. A
value of
    100 means all 99 privilege levels from 1 to 99 are allowed. CAP_SYS_NICE is
    blanket permission.
    (akpm: see for
    tips on integrating this with PAM).
