  Well, when grepping within the latest sources, I found something like
  what you mentioned. However, it would be better to make it standard
  in order to avoid its inclusion in every source code that requires
  UNIX sockets.

  BTW, how do you use drivers?

  It's like nothing was written about it ;-)

  Thanks.
