would be nice to have support for listening to unix sockets instead of tpc ports (reasons include, not having to dedicate a tcp port, performance, filesystem based access control~)

syntax could something like this
  Listen unix:/tmp/nginx1.sock;

(which is how nginx does it)

i realize its not a much needed feature (else it'd be implemented already right?), but i need something like this right now, and Nginx has supported this for years (since 2009)
