I agree.  I think we should have support for Unix domain sockets
and return APR_ENOTIMPL on those platforms without it.  I know
I've posted patches before that do this.  You'd have to search
the archives to find them (don't have MsgId's handy, sorry).

IIRC, the rest of the group was dead-set against this.  Perhaps the
fact that more people are interested will sway them.  -- justin
