Bug#656910: RFC: Making realtime prios and audio orthogonal

As outlined in #656910, "being in the audio group" and "having realtime
priorities" aren't separated at the moment.
To make these two independent, we'd need to use a different (new?) group
for realtime priorities.
Any suggestions? rtaudio maybe? Current idea:
- modify jackd1 and jackd2 to depend on some new package, e.g.
jackd-common (provided by src:jack-defaults)
- have jackd-common provide /etc/security/limits.d/rtaudio.conf
- use adduser --system rtaudio in jackd-common's postinst scripts
- maybe ask the user about adding user IDs to this new group
Do we have to coordinate with debian-devel about the group name?
