Hahaha, neither or nor. You aren't an idiot, but it anyway isn't ideal.
Sessions should be usable on different distros, since I'm switching
between distros, I prefer to have distros as similar/equal as possible.

So for me the ideal solution is the lowest common denominator ;).

IMO a group "audio" managed by pam is the best solution. I don't care
about sudo vs su etc.. A group "audio" IMO is a good idea, even and
especially if different users should use the same files.

IIUC, if the higher level folder is set to user Xyz and group audio,
there shouldn't be an issue. The group "audio" at least is needed to set
rt-priorities ;), hence any user usually should be member of the group
