Not really.

The default installation of lighttpd would put itself in the autostart, maybe 
i just wanted to share a file and it would take time for me to change the 
configuration for avoiding autostart and create a new config file. And of 
course i should also know how to do that.

I've tried copying the default configuration and i had to: remove the pid file 
directive, change the default port (sometimes also a non-root user might wish 
to share a file).
With this option in the conffile:
server.port = 8080

Trying to start lighthttpd as user like this:
$ lighttpd -f myconf.conf 
2010-09-07 10:53:30: (network.c.358) can't bind to port: :: 80 Permission 

So no. I think you are wrong.
