Subject Re: AF_UNIX sockets in APR...

I'm -0 on adding them as they're really NOT portable. All the code I've seen
to add similar functionality on non-unix platforms has been flawed in a
number of ways and doesn't actuallt equal a 1 - to - 1 replacement for
AF_LOCAL.

One thing is for sure, they can't be added to apr_socket_t as that would
destroy our abstractions (in that apr_socket_t wouldn't then be usable
across all platforms in the same manner).

Anyway, knock yourselves out.
