As of now, the only practical part to move out is just that tiny
mlock bit. Using pam_limits seems the best choice there. This burdens
the audio folks with a documentation task (describing not only how
to turn this rlimits feature on properly, although that'd be welcome
since the docs in that area are lacking, but also doc for the module
re: SCHED_FIFO). A general solution is pam_cap, and making capabilities
inherit in a sane way (Andy L. and I have code to move in that direction).
One step shy of that, is extend what you've done across the capability
set, so that it could solve problems similar to yours but with different
cap requirements. Pushing more bits into rlimits is possible as well,
but could get unruly.

thanks,
