I have a requirement to run a root uid Z2 process and was most surprised
to see that line 334 of Zope/Startup/__init__.py expressly forbids this,
throwing a ZConfig.ConfigurationError
While it's not a good idea to configure Zope to run as root by default,
isn't it completely fascist to disallow it altogether? Similarly, I'd
now expect issues if I chose to attach a Z2 to a low port.
As far as I'm concerned, the account policy (and port too) is clearly
defined by directives in zope.conf and should be honoured - clearly
someone's consciously made these configuration changes and is thus fully
accepting of their potential consequences.
How about relaxing this requirement?
