The point is not that most people would run as root; it was that most 
people would have the ability to grant themselves realtime privileges.  
And, frankly, I think most people who would benefit from this patch 
would be quite willing to accept a slight possibility of locking up 
their systems if it meant they could play games with clean audio.  I 
know I certainly would.
