The unix(7) man page says that null have no special meaning in
abstract unix domain socket address (the length is specified

However, when such name (embedding null) is used, ss (and netstat)
will only show up to the first null occurrence (second technically, if
we count the null prefix).
e.g. the name "\0/tmp/fo\0.sock" is displayed as: "@/tmp/fo" (whilst
strace tool shows it as: sun_path=@"/tmp/fo\0.sock").

Would it be more useful if it printed the whole name and escaped the null?
If so, would '\0' be ok for escaping the null?
