DRb UNIX on local machine: add support for getpeereid()
UNIXSocket has this method
#getpeereid() which returns effective user ID and effective group ID.
drbunix:// on local machine doesn't support that method. In my use case, I need to verify clients via that method. So it would be great if you add support to DRb.
Actually that method
#getpeereid() is from
BaseSocket, but documentation states that it only supports UNIX sockets. I mean, it's a general method from parent class. So you can do the same with DRb: add some similar method, but only works via
drbunix:// on local machine. Otherwise you can raise error...
