[LAD] pipes or network?

I wonder what is the best way to connect applications on the same 
computer. Usually I use network and localhost plus custom protocols or 
OSC to let them communicate but wonder if pipes are more efficient. The 
data to be exchanged is usually control rate, not audio nor video streams.

So what are the pros and cons of pipes versus network?
