I was actually recently exploring what would be needed to do this as 
well, and I was told that since Windows doesn't have unix domain socket 
support, you either have to use (A) Winsock, or (B) Named pipes (which I 
was also told would be preferable. If you used named pipes, it also 
would work in other non-unix-domain socket OS' which means greater 

If you pursue this, please, make me aware of any progress....
