As long as everyone is fine with changing the behavior for unix domain  
socket, it looks good to me. I'll generate up a patch for this.

One additional thought, binding to UDP. I'd like to suggest we open up  
the UDP port by default on the same port as the TCP port.

My reason for this?

I have UDP support now in libmemcached, and I want to allow users to  
have the default option of knowing the server is doing both.
