That would work for me.

Note there are other reasons besides my Red-Hat-specific problem for not
wanting to enable TCP connections during regression tests, for instance
* on some platforms they will fail due to aggressive kernel packet
* one might not care to expose a postmaster running with auth-method
"trust" to the network, even for just a few seconds.
