question on using INADDR_LOOPBACK in ev_pipe

Currently I am using libevent for socket read/write/timeout event and
facing some issue where some users are experiencing application failure due
to anti-virus/firewall blocking libevent binding INADDR_LOOPBACK.  I was
looking at libev as alternative solution but found in ev_win32.c that it's
using two sockets emulating the pipe as well.  Is there a way to avoid this?
