"http://localhost" would contact port "80".

At least under Unix all ports up to 1024 are priviledged.
Only servers running as root can bind to them.
For security reasons, you probably would not like to run Zope as root.

Today, I read in the list, that even if you start Zope as root, the actual
ZServer uses a different user (to be configured).
Then this would remove the above mentioned security issues.
If this is indeed true, you may try to use Zope with port 80.
There is an option to "z2.py" which allows you to specify
which port to use for the HTTP server.
