Using IP as a localhost IPC is not uncommon (independent of
software preferring AF_UNIX, if so available). Distro boot
scripts have been running `ip addr add ::1/128 dev lo`
all these years along.

And now we suddently need a DBUS program just to configure
IP-based localhost IPC? I can see the flaw in that.
