requests is built on top of urllib3 so there's that...

The biggest reaon I favor using Jamie Lennox's new session layer stuff in
keystoneclient is that it better reflects the requests API instead of it
being stuffed in after the fact.  And as the one responsible for that
stuffing, it was pretty blunt and really needs to be cleaned up more than
Alessio did.

only a few libs (maybe just glance and swift?) don't use requests at this
point and I think the resistance there is the chunked transfers they both

I'm really curious what 'noauth' means against APIs that have few, if any,
calls that operate without a valid token.
