Michael shared[1] better pg_hba.conf syntax on 2016-11-05.  I agreed[2] with
his framing of the problem and provided two syntax alternatives, on
2017-01-18.  Michael implemented[3] a variation of one of those on 2017-02-20,
which you declined in your 2017-03-07 commit with just the explanation quoted
above.  I say Michael came up with something better five months ago.
Reserving, as HEAD does today, keyword "scram" to mean "type of SCRAM we
introduced first" will look ugly in 2027.  Cryptographic hash functions have a
short shelf life compared to PostgreSQL.
