    To elaborate some, does the inode field mean that a socket can be
    accessed by an inode, in some way?

    The documentation for lsof says it can be used to list "network
    files", e.g. lsof -i:143, lists some imap related processes.

    I see that /proc/1/fd/3 is a link to something like: socket:[1234].
