Package: tomcat6-user
Version: 6.0.28-7
Severity: normal

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
It would be nice if the tomcat user instances could be started via init-
scripts just like the default tomcat6 instance.

Some custom init-scripts are have been posted to blogs, but these basically 
just call sudo startup.sh and shutdown.sh, making them unusable with 
privileged ports.

I'd imagine that the tomcat6-instance-create script could optionally create an 
accompanying configuration file (/etc/default/tomcat6-instancename) and init-
script /etc/init.d/tomcat6-instancename).
