I guess we should actually do that if we had any non-local(host)
entries in there by default, but we don't touch the default
pg_hba.conf from pg_createcluster.

Possibly we could add some hostssl example in comments to the end of
the .sample file so people could grow the habit of using that instead
of host (I certainly aren't doing myself that yet), but I'd rather see
that changed upstream.

So, how about something like this for the end of pg_hba.conf.sample?

# Examples for allowing access from given networks:
#hostssl all  all   @authmethod@
#hostssl all  all  2001:DB8::/32  @authmethod@

(These are "documentation" networks from RF5737/RFC3849.)
