Just install it into ~/apache-tomcat-7.0.27 and call it a day. You
won't have to worry about file permissions or any of that stuff
because a) you will untar it as yourself and b) you will run it as
yourself.

Just be aware that he effective uid must have wrx access to work/,
logs/, and probably temp/

That's why it's best to run it as yourself. Also, not running as root
gives you a significant security boost because in the unlikely event
of a Tomcat vulnerability, only your account can be trashed, not the
entire machine.
