Currently, pg_passwd allows the creation of secondary password file that
can be used as part of 'password' pg_hba.conf entries.

Why do we bother supporting passwords in pg_shadow and secondary files? 
Seems we could just allow usernames in the secondary files, and use the
user passwords from pg_shadow.
