In 0.4.0, the man page doesn't say that AF_UNIX is required. Changing bug to be a doc fix.

If you want to make something more complicated work, please propose on list and if there is consensus that it's a good idea we can have a bug, but I would prefer to avoid random wishlist things without at least one of patches or consensus.

It seems there is no way to run this program on a ip socket.

spamass-milter -p /var/run/spamass-milter/spamass-milter.sock

#doesn't work
spamass-milter -p inet:localhost:10024

#chown: inet:localhost:10024: No such file or directory

spamass-milter -p unix:/var/run/spamass-milter/spamass-milter.sock
