Borrowing from what appears to be the main connector declaration in
server.xml, and just leaving out the redirectPort attribute,

    <Connector port="8888"
               maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
               enableLookups="false" acceptCount="100"
               debug="0" connectionTimeout="20000" 
               disableUploadTimeout="true" />

and re-start tomcat, and now I can get at xindice from the command line
and from the browser. Xindice's sample addressbook webapp works, too.

That worries me a _little_ because of all the stuff that is said about
how web-app declarations should not be in the global configuaration
files, but I guess openin a port is a sort of a global kind of activity.

Now, let's see if I can figure out how to make the xindice stuff _only_
listen on 8888:
