It is super frustrating to have to install all of Keystone just to get this one piece of code. As this middleware is just a client, I am proposing we move it into the existing keystone client library - python-keystoneclient. What are the immediate feelings here?

Distributions can solve this by creating multiple binary packages from
the same source package, but I agree that it belongs more to the client
part than to the server part.

In all cases, not for Folsom.
