System V machines have long supported streams & pipe based transports
as well as sockets.

Solaris currently supports X11 connections over TCP sockets,
Unix domain sockets (/tmp/.X11-unix/*) and named pipes/fifos
(/tmp/.X11-pipe/*).  The only other recently active OS that
had transports such as these I can remember is SCO, but libxtrans
is littered with older bits for HP-UX and AIX and the like.
