I opened #28134 because I was running into a similar issue with socket.socket(fileno). Since this new feature didn't make it into 3.6, can we at least change the constructor of socket.socket() to set a correct family, type and proto?

Any fix is better than no fix. It doesn't have to work for all socket types on all operating systems. The feature is mostly used for socket inheritance, systemd socket activation or fd transfer over Unix sockets of AF_INET, AF_INET6 and AF_UNIX file descriptors.
