The official terms are such that sockets in the file system namespace
are AF_LOCAL (or AF_UNIX), and sockets in the Internet namespace are
AF_INET. So using "local (domain) socket" or "Unix (domain) socket"
would be reasonable. (Both are used by PostgreSQL.) A pipe on the
other hand is created by the pipe() function and does not have a socket
or a namespace since it is internal to the creating process, which is
the distinguishing characteristic between a pipe and a socket.
