Thinking about this some more ...

The auth_token middleware is a client for part of keystone's API.

It could be part of keystoneclient, or another library.

If it moves to openstack-commmon, it would eventually end up being
published as e.g. oslo-auth after going through an API stabilization
period (aka "incubation")

Do we gain anything from going this route? Could we not just publish a
keystone-authclient library containing the middleware?
