Does WordPress Support Using Named Pipes on the Windows Operating System?

Okay, suppose I wish to disable networking completely on a development machine running MariaDB 10.1.14, and instead use Windows’ Named Pipes/Sockets. I’m using a local copy of Apache (2.4.23 x64 VC14), PHP (7.0.8) using mod_fcgid 2.3.9, and WordPress 4.5.3, where Apache’s root is C:\prod\httpd, PHP’s root is C:\prod\php, and MariaDB’s root is C:\prod\mariadb.
