    /**
     * initWithFilename
     *
     * This method initializes a Unix domain or "local" server socket. Such
     * a socket has a name in the filesystem, like an ordinary file. To
     * connect, a client supplies the socket's filename, and the usual
     * permission checks on socket apply.
     *
     * This makes Unix domain sockets useful for communication between the
     * programs being run by a specific user on a single machine: the
     * operating system takes care of authentication, and the user's home
     * directory or profile directory provide natural per-user rendezvous
     * points.
     *
     * Since Unix domain sockets are always local to the machine, they are
     * not affected by the nsIIOService's 'offline' flag.
     *
     * The system-level socket API may impose restrictions on the length of
     * the filename that are stricter than those of the underlying
     * filesystem. If the file name is too long, this returns
     * NS_ERROR_FILE_NAME_TOO_LONG.
     *
     * All components of the path prefix of |aPath| must name directories;
     * otherwise, this returns NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_DIRECTORY.
     *
     * This call requires execute permission on all directories containing
     * the one in which the socket is to be created, and write and execute
     * permission on the directory itself. Otherwise, this returns
     * NS_ERROR_CONNECTION_REFUSED.
     *
     * This call creates the socket's directory entry. There must not be
     * any existing entry with the given name. If there is, this returns
     * NS_ERROR_SOCKET_ADDRESS_IN_USE.
     *
     * On systems that don't support Unix domain sockets at all, this
     * returns NS_ERROR_SOCKET_ADDRESS_NOT_SUPPORTED.
     *
     * @param aPath nsIFile
     *        The file name at which the socket should be created.
     *
     * @param aPermissions unsigned long
     *        Unix-style permission bits to be applied to the new socket.
     *
     * Note about permissions: Linux's unix(7) man page claims that some
     * BSD-derived systems ignore permissions on UNIX-domain sockets;
     * NetBSD's bind(2) man page agrees, but says it does check now (dated
     * 2005). POSIX has required 'connect' to fail if write permission on
     * the socket itself is not granted since 2003 (Issue 6). NetBSD says
     * that the permissions on the containing directory (execute) have
     * always applied, so creating sockets in appropriately protected
     * directories should be secure on both old and new systems.
