Not all OSes support ident ... Solaris and OpenBSD for two, don't, because 
they see ident as insecure.

We switched the default to "trust localhost only" after many, many complaints 
by newbies that they had installed PostgreSQL but couldn't log into it.  
Other than maybe putting more emphasis on setting up the superuser password 
in the tutorial, I really don't think that we should change the behavior.
