Like the device names, it would be logical to have device nodes for all
of this. It is a bit silly (to say the least) that one has to do a call
to socket(2) and use funny network protocol types, when for a disk one
merely has to open("/dev/sd0c", ...). Having it in a directory tree
structure would be the logical thing too, I think.
