This said, taking another look at src/core.c:job_export() reveals that for any
CheckIn request, only an array of file descriptors is returned for all defined
sockets. So whatever I try to do with the returned object, I won't be able to
fetch the socket path out of this one.

The other code (the "LAUNCH_JOBSOCKETKEY_PATHNAME" part) seems to be
launchd-internal and I don't see any way to access this private data.

Am I missing something?
