The Mojolicious web development toolkit is currently limited to using TCP/IP sockets for its HTTP/WebSocket client and server. For most web services that's more than enough, but for containerized applications and IPC, UNIX domain sockets could provide significantly better performance and security.

Use cases would be for example faster communication between Mojolicious application servers and NGINX reverse proxies, or a WebSocket alternative to the D-BUS message bus currently being used by openQA.

Looking for hackers with the skills:
