So, it seems that ClientAuthentication() expects to raise ereport(FATAL)
in case of authentication failures.  But what's the code path that
causes that to happen if a ereport(ERROR) happens in there?  Because all
that code is pretty careful to not do ereport(ERROR) directly and
instead return STATUS_ERROR which makes ClientAuthentication do the
FATAL report.  If this doesn't matter, then isn't this whole code overly
complicated for no reason?
