Yes, maybe that would be a workaround. It still looks to me like it will
be impossible (with the current state of the art) to enable something
like this in a generic distro.

Maybe an additional package that configures only this option? To be
installed by users who (supposedly) know what the consequences might be?
For that to be "packageable" /etc/security/limits.conf should be
splittable into different files I guess, otherwise you would depend on
scripts to tweak that. Anyway, does not look good either.

Obviously it depends on what your audio needs may be. If running Jack
without -R is fine then the problem goes away :-)
