I do NOT recommend this. This tends to break in obscure ways, just as
Icecast will happily listen on port 80 directly.

There are people who claim that it isn't possible, but that's because
they aren't capable to reverse the distro packaging breakage.
All it takes is to start the process as root and use the <changeowner>
directive to pass the information to which user to pivot after claiming
the privileged port.
