The release also has two enhancements when running
the ZEO server on Unix:

  the script will switch to a different user (nobody by
  default). There is a new '-u' option that can be used to
  specify the user.

- The storage server will gracefully close served storages when
  the server is killed with a SIGTERM or SIGHUP. If a
  FileStorage is being served, then an index file will be
