For sure.  You gave the correct solution below which I just missed ...

Yes - and this is intended because I talked in the first two lines about the
bootstrap process.

For sure.  You just have to insert the database you want to create here
and also you have to enable authentication from other hosts via TCP/IP
as Karsten mentioned starting with 'host'.  But the sense of my mail was
to restrict to those databases we need and to those users who are allowed
to access and not to open our server to everybody.
