good news!
rlimits for rtprio and nice has been available in FC4 for a year or so.
And in FC5 from the start. Doubt it will go away in FC6... :)

$ grep rtprio /etc/security/limits.conf
#        - rtprio - max realtime priority

Setting rtprio to something sensible you can run jackd
realtime as non-root.
