I'm mostly curious - wath are the pros and cons of using a local UNIX
socket vs. an INET socket? E.g. having a daemon listen
on /var/lib/xxx/yyy.soc instead of localhost:nnnnn ? (it is assumed
that everyone involved will have the choice of using either one).

Any likely performance impacts (positive or negative)?
