Comment (by wsanchez at apple.com):

 Aaron, CalendarServer drops privileges to the user configured in its
 config file after doing some operations that may require root access, such
 as binding to the listen port (which in many cases would be port 80, a
 privileged port) or setting up some log files which the running server
 doesn't need write access to.

 It is not a bad idea to start the server as root, if properly configured,
 but it is true than in some deployments, it may not be necessary.
