I *really* don't think, that every audio software on the planet should
try to setup a user's system for a certain way of realtime operation.
If at all, this should be done only by the package libpam-modules or
maybe by some meta-package (e.g. "realtime-desktop") that the puredata
package could recommend.

The rlimits approach will soon be common knowledge among all Linux
audio users anyway.

Adding a note to /usr/share/doc/puredata/README.Debian would be
something to consider, of course.
