It just seems a little inelegant is all. Once the socket goes away
you're left with a directory entry that refers to no actual object.
After experimenting with multiple servers, or lbxproxy, I find I have
a few of those to clean up manually. At least /tmp is expected to get
cluttered: there are ways to deal with that, but no one wants to run a
cron script to delete old files in his _home_ directory.
