Sockets are not supported by the opendbx backend because they can be only used 
if PowerDNS and the Database server are on the same host. The primary goal of 
the OpenDBX backend are environments where load balancing, fail-over or fault 
tolerance is important. If you don't need this, the gmysql backend also does 
a good job.
