in my setup everything belongs to root, but since "nobody" starts
tomcat, the logfile and work directory belong to nobody:nobody (or
nobody:root if you prefer)
(actually the work and log dir are just sym-links to another dir in
/var/log/tomcat/ - one should keep the filesystem tidy :-)

the class (respectively .jar) files and config files only have to be
readable by the user starting tomcat
