The following patch improves the descriptions in pg_hba.conf,
pg_password, and pg_ident.conf.  I found pg_hba.conf particularly
confusing so I hope this new version is clearer for our users.

One change is that there was no mention that crypt can not be used with
secondary passwords, and little mention that usernames alone can be used
in those secondary password files.
