I still say that pg_hba.conf should be eliminated altogether, in favor of
something that is modifiable by anyone that the supeuser gives permissions
to create databases too ... what's the point of having that ability if you
can't access the database after its created?
Seems kinda anti-friendly to the DBA to be able to have
"sub-ordinates" that can create users and databases, but has to be bug'd
in order to allow them to be accessed ...
pg_hba should become another system table that can be modified with simple
SQL queries, and is modifiable (readable?) only by those with createdb
