I don't know for sockets, but you can't do this with named pipes as used
by init, xconsole and gpm for example. You can only create a new named
pipe with the same filename. This means you would have to restart all
the processes using the named pipe. I don't see a way of doing this
without risking race conditions and other annoying things like your X
server getting killed because it uses gpmdata.
