In order to start Zope as root (necessary to use port 80 on many unixish 
setups) you have to specify a normal system user to drop into when Zope 
is done using root powers -- it will not run as root for security reasons.

If you do not start it as root this is not a problem.

Please see docs/SETUID.txt for more information.
