Please support ident authentication

Detailed description
Hello,

a very convinient method to connect to PostgreSQL server is the ident method. In fact it seems to be the default method for the Debian packaged version of PostgreSQL and the most interesting feature is that you don't have to provide a password if you are connecting to a database at localhost.

It would be really great if Npgsql would support this feature.

Kind regards and thanks for working on Npgsql

Andreas.

This method uses Unix Domain Sockets, which do not have a native .NET implementation. Would require Mono.Unix.[UnixClient] .

This feature would definitely be useful on Linux/Mono servers. I was surprised that it's not present.
