I'm not sure that the documentation does say that, though its not greatly
clear.. I think it means you cannot connect at all without authorization,
and that login(1) may be called to get your password rather than allowing
automatic access.

more likely "none" does what you are hoping for? (allow auth, but fall
back to login(1) if none available)
