These talk about public API abstractions, and I have not yet made my mind up 
on any of that. I wasn't feeling in the position to have to, since the API is 
set in stone anyway, and the remaining diff isn't that big anymore.

Seeing as you quoted point #3 in this reply, though, I guess this is about 
the "unix transport", not public API (though transports could be considered 
part of it, of course).

I can't see from your mails whether you are objecting to the use of plain 
files to "emulate" Unix domain sockets, or to using the "unix:" transport URL 
for that?
