Since we're splitting up the pg_hba.conf setup for logical and physical
connections, it would probably not matter.

But just to think it through, how could we split this up sensibly?

Here is the complete list of things that rolreplication allows:

- create/drop replication slot
- pg_logical_slot_get_changes() and friends
- connect to walsender

For logical replication, we could slice it up this way:

- new user attribute allowing the creating of logical replication slots
- store owner of slot, allow drop and get based on ownership
- allow anyone to connect as walsender

Another problem is that the walsender command to create a replication
slot allows you to load an arbitrary plugin.
