I'm fine with both. I recently installed Dapper, it did put me in the audio
group. Btw, I wouldn't be much concerned to have rtprio set by default. Worst
thing that can happen is the user hogging the CPU. Jackd has it's watchdog
preventing a client from doing so, and Ubuntu kernels ship with
CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ=y, so SysRq-n is available as a last resort.

If we don't want to make the user edit /etc/security/limits.conf, the limits
themselves should be well discussed, too.

I have rtprio 80, is just enough to run jackd (currently; it used to be 70).
Would that be generally ok, or should it be more?

memlock is more difficult. I have memlock 700000, but that's for my hardware
and needs (I'm using BruteFIR with many and long filters, so I need lots of
RAM, which I do have on that machine). What's a sensible default?

I don't set nice. Is it needed for audio?

Yes, let's see if someone brings one up.
