PHP mysql functions do it like you tell them: 'localhost' uses sockets,
127.0.0.1 uses networking
"host Can be either a host name or an IP address. Passing the NULL value or
the string "localhost" to this parameter, the local host is assumed. When
possible, pipes will be used instead of the TCP/IP protocol."
