I know this has already been mentioned, but I think it's worth saying
again.  If you're already certain that the client is local, which you'd
have to be to use socket pair, or AF_UNIX for that matter, you're
probably better off making a shared memory implementation anyway.  It'll
likely be faster than socketpair regardless of the system.

Maybe take a look at olofson's sfifo: http://olofson.net/mixed.html
