If we could make sure that both Unix-socket and localhost connections do
not do SSL by default, that would make it possible to skip cert generation
in "make check" and buildfarm scenarios, which would be awfully nice for
slower buildfarm critters.  I'm not sure though whether libpq should be
given that sort of hardwired knowledge about "localhost".
