Bug reference:      15911
Logged by:          Marco Sulla
Email address:      (redacted)
PostgreSQL version: 11.4
Operating system:   Lubuntu 18.04
Description:        

I see that the encryption methods supported in
`/etc/postgresql/##/main/pg_hba.conf` are only md5 and sha256. It's proved
that Bcrypt is a better algorithm for encrypting passwords, even than
sha512. Spring Boot, for example, uses Bcrypt by default. Can you please add
`bcrypt` as method option?
