Thanks, I will have a look at both.  Luasocket supports it.  It just does not appear to be documented anywhere.

cqueues.socket supports unix sockets. socket.connect takes a table of
options including four values specific to unix sockets:

* .path - path to socket
* .mode - fchmod or chmod socket after creating UNIX domain
* .mask - set and restore umask when binding UNIX domain sockets
* .unlink - unlink socket path before binding

It also supports descriptor passing.

And now that I think about it, I need to add support for credential passing,
as well. So expect that to land shortly.
