It looks like getaddrinfo() doesn't support PF_LOCAL, are there any plans
to implement it, or would you welcome a patch? As I understand the
OpenGroup's latest Base Spec draft, getaddrinfo() should support all
supported families. Currently though the only implementations I've seen
are by Craig Metz and Richard Stevens. The former is currently used in
glibc. Adding PF_LOCAL support is pretty straightforward.
