If you are considering proposing your patch for inclusion in the
PostgreSQL upstream sources, you should first discuss why you are
trying to do this and what you hope to get out of it. There might be
a way to do whatever it is you are trying to do without modifying the
source code.
One point worth noting is that there is precisely zero hope of making
that work in any existing release series, because auth.c doesn't run
inside a transaction. You could probably make it work with recent CVS
HEAD though (ie, since we pulled the plug on the flat auth file).
