Not so. The http://validator.w3.org/nu/ backend is running under a screen
session, as is the part of the backend for http://validator.w3.org that
does HTML5 validation (which are actually exactly the same backends). So
it's definitely possible to run the service under a screen session.

No there isn't. Nothing specific to the validator.nu code at least. But
there may be some jetty config setting for handling it.
