I've been asked by my team to investigate what is required to enable AF_UNIX in Python.

Is anyone else actively investigating this?  I did a prelinary investigation and the impact on test in test_sockets was pretty simple.  

However there were 26 test failures in test_asyncio tests, with only the naive changes to all AF_UNIX to work with the socket class on Windows.  

The first failure I looked at was caused by ProactorEventLoop in not providing a windows-specific version of create_unix_server. This results in the code falling back to AbstractServer.create_unix_server which raises NotImplementedError.
