The docker binary is originally labeled as docker_client_t, which is
also capable of talking to docker_socket_t.

That's nice! Didn't know about that one, sounds much better than pushing
HTTP headers around :)
Btw. the headers could not be forged, due to the policy constraints put
on the socket, but this one should also work with docker-py and similar
tools talking to the socket directly out of the box.
