Good question. We could just announce in the 7.3 release notes that
people have to add a new column after DATABASE for user, and default it
to "all". We could move the USER column to the end, which would present
less of a compatibility issue, but does cause problems with the optional
auth_argument. I can write a script to convert old pg_hba.conf files.
We could also throw a more helpful error if old files are used. Do you
have a suggestion?
