Sure, though as I said it's the same machine connection...

Not an awful lot,  as you see:


@remove-line-for-nolocal(at)# "local" is for Unix domain socket  
connections only
@remove-line-for-nolocal(at)local   all          
all                               @authmethod@
# IPv4 local connections:
host    all         all          @authmethod@
# webserver password access
host    all         all       md5
# IPv6 local connections:
#host    all         all         ::1/128               @authmethod@
