HttpAccessModule and unix domain sockets

Hi all,

It seems that when using HttpAccessModule directives to deny requests, they
don't seem to work if the server is listening on a unix domain socket. Even
when using deny all.
Can someone confirm and it's not just me making some stupid mistake ?

Now if that is the case, would it be a good idea to add this functionality
to the module ? Maybe add a new parameter like "deny unix" or something ?
Or was this left out on purpose for a reason or another ?

Thank you.
