That's what I thought.

Hmm, that would be in semi-violation of SQL, since users are supposed to
be global. We've been thinking about making per-database *passwords* for
each user, but I don't think this buys a lot.

That could be a problem. Assume you delete all users from that table. How
do you get back in and add any? But something like this is clearly needed,
it just can't be in the database -- probably pg_hba.conf.
