How do you connect to the remote server when password is required?
I think we cannot pass through passwords to the remote server
even if the same user is used on the local and remote servers.

However, SERVER and USER MAPPING might be useless for file_fdw because
SERVER is always the local file system and USER is always the OS's user
who started the postmaster. I'm not sure how we should treat cases
where those settings don't have any configurations.
