Hi Mark,

My APR based connector is starting purring. TCP & UDP are supported
(I think SCTP too but I made no test). Perhaps I can force/modify APR 
for supporting Unix domain socket. Unix socket can be very usefull too
for communication between a C prog and a Java one, but I'm not sure
nowadays loopback UDP is really slower than Unix sockets.
