On the mailing list, Remy provided a forward-thinking hint that I hope can make
it into the security FAQ as an own entry #5:

<<How to run tomcat on 80/443 (i.e. sub1024) port without root privileges? The
options are at least:
1) use "jsvc" from the commons-daemon project (perhaps requires to migrate to
tomcat 5 - haven't tested it) as per
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-5.0-doc/setup.html
2) use some kind of port forwarder/caching like squid [link]
3) use apache as front end [Link here]>>

Thanks Remy!
