I notice that users and groups are per-cluster rather than per-database.
Is there any way to create users and groups that are not available to
other databases on the same cluster? I would expect databases to be
completely independent, regardless of whether they are available from
the same host and port.

This seems like it should be theoretically possible - after all, you can
not even connect to postgres unless you specify a database in the
connection.
