AF_UNIX comes to Windows

According to this blog, AF_UNIX comes to Windows 10:

This feature has no connection to the "Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)".
(WSL already has AF_UNIX support).

I see the libcurl code has most of it's test for Unix-domain
sockets inside a '#ifdef USE_UNIX_SOCKETS', so 'AF_UNIX' won't be
possible now for 'USE_WINSOCK' code w/o a major rewrite.

No mention of <sys/un.h> in the blog, but a new <afunix.h> should
do the same. I'll download the new "Win-10 17069-SDK" and check.
