Thinking about it, we can even abuse the port number field if we just require
the slashes to be encoded:

It just means that we'd treat a non-numeric port number as a unix domain
socket path.

I guess we need some input from Bart Whiteley or others with some feedback on
actual use-cases to help us decide on how to specify this.
