With IPV6_V6ONLY? Yes, except for older systems that don't have it...

AF_LOCAL also pose the problem that you have to unlink() the `socket'
in the file system before you can bind a new one. Since the code
calling getaddrinfo() doesn't have to know anything about AF_LOCAL, it
will have to be done by getaddrinfo. And what does getaddrinfo(NULL,
"4711", ) really mean, as in what filename should that refer to?
