ldapi:/// Unix & domain socket usage

I've configured the 2.0.11 dist with --enable-local for LDAP_PF_LOCAL
support.  I've also added a listener for ldapi:///, and on startup a named
pipe is created under /tmp/389.  My question is: How do you use this?  Is
there some sample code for using this, or any special considerations?  I
originally had been doing some research on CLDAP and came across this from
previous posts.  Is there any special advantage to this implementation over
CLDAP?  I understand there should be much less protocol overhead, but the
limitation is that the client must be on the same host as the LDAP server.
