May OpenLDAP client use a domain socket instead of a TCP socket?


I got a hint that the OpenLDAP client lib has some (underdocumented, but
supported) capabilities to use a domain socket instead of a TCP socket,
and we would really to use this feature for the accessing LDAP servers
in the Ägypten project, see http://www.gnupg.org/aegypten/index.html
and see http://www.gnupg.org/aegypten/images/module-overview-ldap.png

Now there are two important questions for us:

a) Is the feature is still there and

b) Might it become an officially supported feature instead of just an
   undocumented one?

Thank you in advance!
