It should be possible to do this without any core changes, as an initial
implementation.  One of the goals for Apache 2.0, was to allow the socket
to be abstracted out of the server by a module.  If you create your own
module, that implements listening for an SCTP socket, everything should
just work.

For an example of how to do this, take a look at perchild and how I
inserted the Unix domain socket into the listen_rec list.

THANK YOU!  I forgot about that bug, but this does look like the
problem.  I spent all of my time looking at pass_request(), and completely
ignored receive_from_other_child().   :-(
