Probably written by someone very familiar with httpd and unfamiliar with Tomcat.  Using Tomcat
standalone on port 80 without root privileges is actually much easier and less overhead, as
described here:
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/setup.html#Unix%20daemon

See above.  You can also use iptables to do port forwarding.

All you need for that is two <Connector> elements, one for port 80, one for 8080.

Now you have a real reason for keeping httpd in the mix.
