It's a socket. Any of the calls you would do with a network connected
socket, you can do with a Unix socket. There are some things you can do
over a unix socket that you can't do over a network socket, like pass file
descriptors and credentials (pid, uid, gid of sending packet) but that stuff
tends to be a pain to use.
