Definitely: The version of PAM, that makes it trivial to allow
non-root users to gain realtime priviledges, was introduced in the
major distributions about 0.5 or 0.75 years ago. Before that, exotic
things like realtime-lsm, jackstart or so had to be used. But that's
history now and there's no convincing reason to run Pd as root on
current distributions. (There are several reasons to not do so.)
