[openstack-dev] Removing Keystoneauth Dependency in Castellan Discussion

So from my understanding now, we are wanting to remove the HARD dependency on Keystoneauth, not to remove it completely since that would break the barbican client. Currently seeing if we just remove the dependency from requirements.txt, if that stops Keystoneauth from being used until you try to use the barbican.

My understanding is that keystone is used when the barbican driver
is invoked. So I don't understand how we can remove the dependency
completely. We could possibly make it an "extras" so that it is
only installed if the barbican driver is going to be used. Is that
what you mean?
