Apologies if this has been asked before, but the mailing list archive seems
to be down again.

Is there any reason that a security model does not exist for psql that
allows Unix user 'fred' to log in as PG user 'fred' with no password etc,
but any user trying to log on as someone other than themselves has to
provide a password?
