Well, it's more for fun than for real integration :-)
Maybe that's not a good idea to mix the 2 concepts of UNIX
socket and Windows named pipes. A safer way would be to use
a separate class like named-pipe-socket, or even to separate
it completely from the BSD-SOCKETS package (for example,
the setsockopts doesn't make sense with named pipes).

Maybe a stupid question, but isn't sun_len supposed to hold the
length of sun_path?
