Answering yes to that renames (using mv) 

In other words, the top file is what comes with jackd, and the script 
changes the name to the bottom if the user agrees.

BTW I just tested this on 16.10 ubuntustudio. Jackdbus starts in realtime 
mode OOTB. /etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf is present. The last three 
lines are:
@audio   -  rtprio     95
@audio   -  memlock    unlimited
#@audio   -  nice      -19

(nice doesn't do anything in this context)
