[openstack-dev] Removing Keystoneauth Dependency in Castellan Discussion

It's been a bit since the summit but I believe this was also discussed at
the Denver PTG as well:  https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/oslo-ptg-queens

The keystoneauth stuff seems to be more from Sydney, but if I remember
correctly, Castellan authenticates through keystoneauth and passes the
session to barbicanclient.  This is the only use of keystoneauth within
Castellan, so one idea that was mentioned was to see if Castellan could
simply pass the credentials to barbicanclient, which would auth through
keystoneauth instead, removing the dependency from Castellan.
