BaseHTTPServer and priviledge separation?

to use a port below 1000 on a Unix system one needs root priviledges.
But it's dangerous to execute all of a script under those priviledges.
Therefore I'd like to drop the root priviledges as soon as possible.
(How) is this possible?

Many thanks for a hint,
