If this isn't fixed then PG will never be a supported infrastructure

without the ability to integrate into a multi-realm infrastructure this
won't fly.  Of course even with proper support it still may never
happen, so that isn't a threat.

Sure, but that's no reason to pull it from 8.3 if it can only be fixed
in 8.4. It's a good reason to work towards having it fixed in 8.3,
certainly, but not a reason to pull it if it isn't there.

FWIW, I'm fairly certain I can have a match_realm parameter done for beta3.

A brief inspection suggests the relevant code from my original patch would work with very little modification. It supports what I need to support.

*I* have no need for a "match_realm" parameter as long as realm matching *is* done and can be done on a per-user basis. Obviously it would be convenient for some other people if realm matching could be disabled or a non-default realm could be made the default and required. I just don't want such "extras" to create security holes (by equating different users) or prevent support of the full user pool.
