There's nothing for Unix. The JSVC wrapper should allow using Tomcat as 
non root on port 80.

All the bugs so far are with the (brand new) procrun for NT. Bugs 18220, 
21279 (IMO, to make things more reliable and keep it simple, procrun 
should wait for the child VM to die before stopping everything, rather 
than simply waiting until the stop method returns), 22174.
5.0.8 is good enough :)

Yes. I think JF made it so that procrun is supposed to run on Windows 9x 
also. Do you think compiling on XP could still produce 9x compatible 
binaries ?

Thanks :)
