This simple extension provides two functions to pass and receive file
descriptors across UNIX domain sockets, using the BSD-4.3+ sendmsg() and
recvmsg() interfaces.
Direct bindings to sendmsg and recvmsg are not provided, as the API does
not map nicely into Python.
Please note that this only supports BSD-4.3+ style file descriptor
passing, and was only tested on Linux.
