I have a very strange question to ask of you...I've just recently 
installed postgre sql and have started looking through the pg_hba.conf 
file trying to setup access to the databases I have while I stumbled 
into a very philosophical type of question.
I can specify which databases a user is allowed to connect to, but I 
don't get the true meaning of this as if I allow the user to connect to 
all databases without having any grant on any tables of those databases  
then I achieve a secure enough environment without specifying access 
only to a particular database.

What would be a practical example of the usage of the databases 
parameter there ?
