1) Opens port 80 by default
2) Drops root privs if it has them
3) Takes connections on port 80, connects to port 8080 (by default) on 
localhost (by default) and just passes bytes between the two.

It's meant to let you use the standard http port with WebAdmin, but not 
run the server as root (since you need to be root to bind port 80).

The only difference would be instead of connecting to 
http://servername.com:8080/, you would connect to http://servername.com/

If www.wolfhold.com has a real webserver already, /ServerAdmin can do an 
http redirect to the actual WebAdmin server.
