>I got a new idea on this.  I think we should add an initdb option that
>takes a string to specify the local authentication method:
>       initdb --auth 'ident'
>or whatever the user wants.  I think this is more flexible and more
>compact.  It would default to 'trust', and the packagers could
>set it to
>whatever they want.  If their OS supports local ident, they can use
>Also keep in mind you might want some ident map file:
>       initdb --auth 'ident mymap'
>so you would need to allow multiple words in the string.
