Apologies for replying an old thread. The main reason behind of this patch is for the administrators to control and verify the authentication mechanism that was deployed for several users in the database is correctly picking the assigned hba config or not? I feel this SQL function is useful for administrators and not for normal users. If anyone is not against to the above use case, i will update the patch based on the review comments and post it later.
