Support relay listening on AF_LOCAL (AF_UNIX) sockets #733
Local sockets exist as files with normal permissions, so it would be possible to listen on a socket that only the user has access to. There'd be no need for multiple users to agree on listening ports or for a relay password.
SSH now has support for Unix socket forwarding, so it would be possible to have a client connect to weechat via SSH with no additional passwords.
