How about we fix the code and only document the limitations instead? :) After
all it works fine on Windows and it is documented to work on all operating
systems. Since it's a bug we can fix it in 3.5, too.
My patch implements a best-effort to get type, family and proto from the
socket. It ignores any errors.
