Well, technically it is a web server, since it speaks HTTP and serves
an XML-RPC based API ;) But yes, I see your point.
This is an artifact of xapi being from XenServer, where you would
never, ever want to put another web server in dom0. And still, even
with xapi on Debian, we still wouldn't recommend someone do this,
which is why xapi's binding ports aren't configurable.
It shouldn't be too hard make xapi configurable, so that you can
change a conf file setting and tell it to listen on a different port,
for both HTTP and HTTPS traffic. Is this something that is highly
desirable for Wheezy?
