Eric Marsden's PG speaks the PostgreSQL socket protocol directly,
but supports both Internet domain (AF_INET a.k.a. IP/TCP) sockets
and local-domain (AF_LOCAL/AF_UNIX) sockets, depending on the 'host"
parameter you supply. Oh, and by the way, if you use some FFI to the
PostgreSQL library API, you still end up using sockets, since that's
how the C client library talks to the server.
