This patch completes the following TODO item:
* Allow usernames to be specified directly in pg_hba.conf (Bruce)
Currently, we allow usernames in secondary password files, but this is a
very confusing feature. This patch:
o removes secondary password file support
o adds a user name column just after the database column
o allows a comma separated list of usernames or databases
o allows another file to contain a list of username/databases
by preceding the pg_hba.conf entry with '@'
o allow single or double-quoting of user/database names
See the documentation changes and new pg_hba.conf diffs for samples.
Is the '@' sign a good way to identify a file name? Is putting the
username column just after the database column the right place for it?
