Hmmm ... it seems to me that's exactly what they say:
From the renice man page:
Users other than the super-user may only alter the priority of processes
they own, and can only monotonically increase their ``nice value''
the range 0 to PRIO_MAX (20). (This prevents overriding administrative
fiats.) The super-user may alter the priority of any process and
priority to any value in the range PRIO_MIN (-20) to PRIO_MAX.
Non super-users can not increase scheduling priorities of their own
cesses, even if they were the ones that decreased the priorities in the
From the setpriority man page:
The setpriority call sets the priorities of all of the specified
processes to the specified value. Only the super-user may lower
