Hi Peter,

I applied and committed your patches. Thanks! However, I'll be making
some changes. For instance, it isn't good that chilli_query will default
to using the TCP port instead of the unix socket... I will change it to
only use the TCP socket if specified. Also, might as well allow for
chilli_query to use an IP other than localhost. It would be great if
you'd make these changes and submit another patch, otherwise I will do
