  I'm not denying there were SOCK_DGRAM servers. What I'm saying is that
I had a SOCK_STREAM server and it worked, which means libcs had support
for SOCK_STREAM clients.

  And the glibc still does:

  If there's no authoritative source asserting that /dev/log is a datagram
socket and nothing else, I'm submitting a feature request to support
SOCK_STREAM in musl's syslog(). I know it would horribly complicate the
code, but I have something that works with glibc and doesn't with musl,
and nobody wants that. :)
