Thank you Andrew.  That Yaws article is generally applicable for binding privileged ports in any program.

I like the idea of using authbind or privbind for running Zotonic on 80
or 443.  Unfortunately I got inpatient and fell back on NAT pre-routing with iptables (which I learned when setting up TeamCity).  I'm going to give authbind and privbind another shot.

Thanks again,
