I'm not sure this is a security problem anymore.  There are two bugs
open against this.
66724 is a wishlist bug, saying unix sockets should be turned on for
"obvious reasons".

75064 is from Brian Almeida who was the maintainer when the unix
sockets were a security problem.  He says that they are no longer,
and should be turned on.

I am going to file a bug saying tcp sockets are buggy with respect
to kernel 2.4


Let the machine do the dirty work.
