This would be a micro-option that exports implementation details in the
user interface. It would also put the burden of choosing the correct
config-dir / socket parameter combination on the user, which sounds
like a nice receipe for disaster.

Naively, I would think the socket could also be put
into the temp directory. There would still need to be a mapping of
config-dir to socket, but that could be done automatically (possibly
normalizing the config dir name, hashing it and putting the hash into
the socket name).
