This will be long-term issue. Windows 10 supports AF_UNIX. This may be provided by third parties, but I believe that we should support AF_UNIX in standard libary. This will be useful to communicate external process via socket file on Windows.

This is small example that I could build and worked on Windows.

Add the same implementation to as well.

This works only on Windows 10.
