If I understand you correctly, you wish to forward connections from a
unix domain socket on a local machine to network ports on a remote
machine. And given that in most situations, clients will have been
written to connect to network ports, you'll write a patch for socat
allowing for network ports on a local machine to be forwarded to the
unix domain socket in question.

But while socat is running in this capacity, how will this provide any
greater security than the current network-port-to-network-port
