Strong words, with which I disagree, given that avast.lua does what it
is meant to do on various servers (as tested by me and others).

I did not choose lua-socket lightly. As I wrote in my README, Avast only
supports UNIX Domain Sockets at this time, and from what I could tell,
rspamd_tcp only deals with network sockets. Lua and Domain Sockets don't
seem to be a frequently used combination, so I found my choices limited.

Did I miss an existing Rspamd module supporting domain sockets?

Sigh. Obviously I had a look at other scanner modules before I started
writing code.
