I'd suggest avoiding creating the static cache variable
AuthenticatedUserIsReplicationRole.  This can't possibly be sufficiently
interesting from a performance point of view to justify the risks
associated with stale cache values.  Just look up the pg_authid syscache
entry when needed, ie, treat it more like rolcreaterole than rolsuper.

BTW, you forgot pg_dumpall support.
