Or actually: I didn't check, so maybe they haven't (except pure:dyne,
which has), but it may be worth to take a look at how they do it, if
they do it, and if they don't, maybe indeed suggest a meta-package
that sets limits.conf. A puredata package as well as jackd, ardour
etc. could then recommend this package. 

Just doing this for limits.conf would be trivial, but such a
"tweak-realtime" package could also include some other stuff, like
setting interrupts, checking for preempt in the kernel etc. 

But to reiterate: IMO this is not something a Pd package should even
try to do itself, especially out of respect for the various
distribution policies.
