Sander ran a test on Win32 and it gave an error when using
socket(AF_UNIX...).  So, there isn't a clean way to do this on 
native Win32.  So, is it still worth it to introduce this in APR?

I think so, but I'll defer to the consensus.  I'd imagine that we
could have APR_LOCAL/AF_UNIX map to named pipes on Win32.  I'm
not familiar enough with them on Win32 to know how closely they
correspond to Unix domain sockets.  From what little I've heard,
I *think* they sound similar.  I'm probably wrong.  -- justin
