localhost in pgpass file?

Can anyone explain to me why 'localhost' in a .pgpass file matches both 
a Unix socket and a tcp localhost connection?

Also, there is no documentation at all that I can see to cover the Unix 
socket case. I found the information after much looking through asking 
on IRC, where luckily Andrew(at)Supnews knew the answer.


cheers
