If your application runs on the same host as postgres, there is no need to
modify pg_hba.conf as local users will be authenticated with ident - all you
need to to is to create the role for them in postgres.
If it runs somewhere else, you can't modify the remote pg_hba.conf.
To add new databases (and roles....) to postgres, look into dbconfig-common.
