I recently wrote a c module for Python, for passing file descriptors and process
credentials down unix domain sockets under Linux. (using sendmsg(2))

It was pretty easy, and I could send it to anyone interested. Contact me
off-list, since I don't normally read this group.

Perhaps there is a need for a OS-independant wrapper around versions
specifically for Linux, Windows, Solaris, etc?
