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?
