The idea of trust on the local machine is that every user on the local machine 
is allowed direct access to the database, which is a convenience mechanism.  
If that doesn't meet your needs, then by all means, feel free to set up 
whatever security you like.  I tend to leave the local machine (to which I am 
the only person with access) as trust for convenience, but all other machines 
use md5.
