Definitely. I had it set up once before, primarily
using Jetty but also had a test Tomcat.

This was on Apache Gump's old machine
where i hit FOR-422 - perhaps we would also see that
on the Solaris of our zone machine. Lets see.

There is one problem when using both cronjobs and the
webapp interface. I had to add some code to the UNIX
shell script that invokes forrestbot so that it didn't
try to start a build if it was already running. There is
discussion in the archives about that and i think that 
i still have the old config from brutus.

We already need to do a manual start of Apache HTTP Server
after reboot, so one more won't hurt. Of course we need
to fix it all properly. There are notes about this at
