I assume some of you have run into this error before when trying to run
mongrel on port 80 (or another port < 1024) in OSX:

$ mongrel_rails start -p 80
** Starting Mongrel listening at 0.0.0.0:80
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mongrel-0.3.14/lib/mongrel/tcphack.rb:12:in

/bin/mongrel_rails:235
        from /usr/local/bin/mongrel_rails:18

Mongrel runs without sudo on all other ports > 1024 otherwise. Anyone have
the reason that these ports require sudo?
