What are these reasons according to you (apart from running Tomcat as a
daemon on Unix which was also one of my goals at the time)?

Also Excerpt from here:
"jsvc has other useful parameters, such as -user which causes it to switch
to another user after the daemon initialization is complete. This allows,
for example, running Tomcat as a non privileged user while still being able
to use privileged ports."

Best regards.
