Yes, a design decision for 3.x.  The workaround is to simply add an IPC
endpoint to the socket for local apps.  You can hard hack the support back
in too, it's just a socket option on the underlying PGM socket.

I plan to implement a slower more flexible multicast transport that
supports such paradigms, another popular request is atomic multicast.
 Unfortunately no ETA or early access for a while, subject to available
research time.
