Yes, a bit of quick discussion with Ty (who's a NetBSD developer) reveals 
that older and non-NetBSD branches such as OS X use pairs of sockets to 
implement pipes.  (Newer versions of NetBSD have another way of 
implementing pipes that is the default, but the older socketpair approach 
is still supported.)

If getsockname() returns None for pipes, then I guess we can check that.  A 
little digging in the C source of the socket module shows that None is 
returned when the socket has no address, and that seems to make sense for 
sockets created with socketpair().

I've checked in a prototype fix; can you guys (Bob and/or Victor) test it 
for me?  Thanks.
