>From the discussions of last year on -hackers, it was decided to *not*
have an additional column per complains from a couple of hackers
(Robert you were in this set at this point), and the same thing was
concluded during the informal lunch meeting at PGcon. The point is,
the existing SCRAM patch set can survive without touching at *all* the
format of pg_authid. We could block SCRAM authentication when
"password" is used in pg_hba.conf and as well as when "scram" is used
with a plain password stored in pg_authid. Or look at the format of
the string in the catalog if "password" is defined and decide the
authentication protocol to follow based on that.
