Only command line tool understands this way of pointing to Xindice
database, where you can omit protocol name, site and port number.
Command line tool is rather limited in its functionality, and it is
likely that API will be used for anything more or less complex, where
full URL to Xindice server is expected.

So, it isn't that changing the default port number for command line
tool would be too difficult, I guess there just were no requests for
that feature.
