You could also run zope behind Apache. The Apache bits that handle
root permissions seem pretty well accepted.  This doesn't really run
Zope listening to port 80, but if you go to port 80 on the machine
running Apache, you get to zope.

One advantage is that you can bounce Zope all day long without even
touching root.  Plus depending on your setup you can have Apache
running on a separate machine.  This can be better depending on the
situation (i.e.  development machines behind a firewall with private

The downside is that you need to become aquainted with the wonderful
