I am happy to report that, with kernel 2.6.12-rc4 and the proper version
of PAM installed and configured, there is now a way for a normal user
process to gain realtime scheduling w/o having to be SUID root.
Mythfrontend's current realtime scheduling capabilities are able to use
this new capability.  It should also allow people running FC3 to work
properly, where before mythfrontend SUID root did not result in realtime

See http://www.steamballoon.com/wiki/Rlimits and
http://lwn.net/Articles/134460/ for background.
