Admin modifiable at what level?  I don't believe that the "feature" is
valuable enough to warrant defining, implementing, and documenting a GUC
variable, let alone adding a pg_hba.conf column which one could imagine
someone wanting instead.  I suggested a simple source code change, and
I think that's quite sufficient when we have only one request for it
with a not-very-compelling rationale.  There are much more useful tweaks
(eg, altering BLCKSZ) that we have equivalent levels of support for.
